First Cuckoo Blackwater 2016

Maralyn Levett wrote to report her amazement at hearing a cuckoo at 1:15 pm last Friday the 4th March in her garden in Blackwater, North East Hampshire.

She wrote, “It was a beautiful sunny day.I am very familiar with the sound and would not confuse it with wood pigeons, which are plentiful around here.

Thinking that it must be a recording as it was clear as day and repeated several times. Dismissed it as impossible but after hearing that I wasn’t the first according to your website, I thought I must report it too.”
