13th July 2018 Nightingale and Cuckoo

Another fine morning with a slight easterly breeze. The fine weather just goes on and on. I’m unsure why the insignificant, annual ritual of trying to see the seasons first departing Willow Warblers still motivates me but it does.


A moulting Nightingale in Shooters Bottom this morning.

I didn’t see any this morning but an early Nightingale in Shooters Bottom and a juvenile Cuckoo definitely went some way to give the morning some flavour. Although I hope there are many, warm summer days to come, for some of these birds it’s already time to think about leaving.
