First Cuckoo Ashdown Forest 2013

Sue heard her first cuckoo of 2013 in Ashdown Forest, East Sussex yesterday afternoon.

“When I was a kid it was always something my father and I would listen out for and we always knew spring was on its way once we’d heard the cuckoo. I still listen out for them but in recent years I’ve not heard them so much so it was a real joy to hear one this year. It’s been such a long winter I hope it really does mean spring is here at last,” she wrote.

So do we Sue!
