22.06.21 Departing Cuckoo

A very British midsummer day with a cool NE wind and heavy cloud.

A Cuckoo in Shooters Bottom constituted my first of the year. Cuckoo around the solstice are something I’ve seen before here and are undoubtedly birds leaving the county. This is often the first visible sign of southbound migration I see. There were also 2 out of habitat Reed Warbler in full song there whilst a little further west 150+ Swift swirled around Belle Tout and along the cliff edge in the company of 2 House Martin.
