Geoffrey Robinson emailed us to say he heard a cuckoo today in Market Harborough, Leicestershire.
He said, “I’ve never heard the call of a cuckoo before. But this morning, before 10.00 I heard cuck-oo, cuck-oo, cuck-oo, followed by a pause, a repeat call, a pause, a further call, then silence. It was in a deeper tone than I would have imagined.”
Geoffrey, you probably still haven’t hard a cuckoo, as a cuckoo with a deeper tone sounds like a collared dove.
