Fairburn Cuckoo display

A few piccies from a little while ago. I had been down the A1 to RSPB Fairburn Ings to try and catch up with a Common Crane that had been knocking around for a few days. I dipped out on the Crane but I did catch up with some aerobatic cuckoos down at Lin Dyke.

Prior to this shot one had also landed on the wires near the bridge.

  1. Yes it was a good Saturday but Cuckoos are becoming rarer up here and I still haven't got that Northumberland year tick

  2. Likewise here, but still possible to find regular sites in Yorkshire and in Cleveland
