Does this count?

I was convinced that I heard a cuckoo a day or so ago and today the bird itself flew down into the garden. I’d never seen one in the feather before.Β  But we’re still in Switzerland, so I suppose I can’t write to the Times about this.

By the time I’d yelled for a camera, one of the cats had emerged from the house and the cuckoo decided it didn’t want to linger in such company. Still, I shall dedicate this sighting to all Sassenach Charioteers to wish you a happy St George’s Day.

    Definitely. Too early for ours, I’m sure, despite Monday’s perfect weather. I’ll report back when I hear anything. πŸ™‚

    We didn’t hear one at all last year in these parts. I shall be listening out over the next few weeks

    By way of contrast, one lives hereabouts and turns up almost daily after the due date. πŸ˜‰

    Right on cue, the first Danish cuckoo announced his/her intentions on 1st May and has been busy on the 2nd and 3rd too. πŸ™‚
