The cuckoos have been very active again this year, calling from the woodland along the top of the crofts and also from the open hillside above - but they're difficult birds to photograph.

However, this one stayed put while it was stalked, even though.... also had a small bird - at bottom right - scolding it.

We're fortunate that we still have cuckoos.  Their numbers have dropped drastically in the last 25 years for reasons which aren't understood.

  1. I believe many cuckoos are still captured as they fly over the Swiss Alps and Black Forest in Bavaria.
