On hearing the First Cuckoo in Spring.........

20 Apr - That special moment when you hear the first distant Cuckoo proclaiming his arrival from the forests of tropical Africa for his brief visit to the UK, and for us the quintessential harbinger of Spring. So good every year to get that magical moment despite the ever-increasing noise and steady development that threatens their remaining habitat. This year the call echoes across pit 74 from the wood opposite to the gate, Cleveland Lakes is always a good area for them with many Warbler nests to parasitise.
