First Cuckoo Silsden 2016

Karen Procter was out walking her dog today when she heard a cuckoo call about 3 or times at around noon.

She wrote, “it came from the top end of our road, which is very wooded and leads into countryside. I know it’s fairly early for them, but this was a very distinct call, NOT a Dove or Wood Pigeon.

“I am vey familiar with the birds and wildlife of this area, (Silsden – West Yorkshire) and there was no mistaking this wonderful sound. This is only the second time I have heard a cuckoo, and it was very special indeed!”
