A Cuckoo was calling continuously at 2.15am!!!! I listened in disbelief! Stuck my head out of the window and yes, there was a Cuckoo calling – I wasn't dreaming! Never heard one at this time of night! Odd!!!
Did a Couch To 5K run this morning and saw a Barn Owl carrying prey (looked like a rat), a Cuckoo calling and a few Whitethroats, not bad for 'Urban Birding'!!!
Spent the rest of the day with my mother and sisters at Holme. Did some clearing in the garden with my shears for mother – her garden is like a jungle! Then spent the evening at Titchwell RSPB. Heard the Turtle Dove in the car park. Saw and heard two Cetti's Warblers, Sedge Warblers singing, Blackcap, Blackbirds collecting food, Marsh Harrier, Robins, Herons, a Chinese Water Deer, a Muntjac and the highlight was a Bittern booming!
Back to work tomorrow.
