First Cuckoo Llanmadoc 2016

We have had a report from Jonathan Upton of a cuckoo heard in Llanmadoc, Gower in Wales. Although we do get some reports at this time of year it is far too early for cuckoos to have returned as they have not yet started their long journeys back from Africa.

It is most likely to have been the call of a collared dove which can sound very similar to a cuckoo particularly if the sound is unfamiliar.
