My First Cuckoo of the year.

Whitethroat sining at The Fitties
An early morning start on an absolutely glorious morning today. I was down at the yacht club waiting, with fellow photographer Don Davis, for the gates to be opened at 7.15. I first heard the cuckoo while still sitting in the car but heard it several more times while I was there. I didn't walk far today - just a short way along the sea bank towards the lock gates at Tetney. I decided to stay near the lake to concentrate on the whitethorats that were singing there. An excellent morning and difficult to drag myself away.
