First Cuckoo Ringwood 2018

Tom Harvey emailed us to say he had just seen and heard his first cuckoo of the year about a mile sort-east of Ringwood in the New Forest, Hampshire.

He said it’s the same place that he always sees them but it is a week earlier than usual and in previous years they have always appeared on the 12th or 13th of April.
