First Cuckoo Crowborough 2016

Dik Cook emailed us to say he had heard his first cuckoo this year extraordinarily early at about 12:45 pm on the 23rd February in Jarvis Brook, south of Crowborough, East Sussex.

He explained, “It was not a collared dove as we have those inhabiting our dovecote and I know their calls too well.”
