Just a quick trip up to Soil Hill this early evening to see what was about. After one Spotted Flycatcher on 17th, I was pretty thrilled to see 2 today. They are down the track to the left of the Koi Farm up on Soil Hill and were showing very well, fly-catching right above me.
On the way down I got a pleasant surprise in the form of a Juvenile Cuckoo perched up on one of the walls along Taylor Lane, opposite New Fold Farm. I managed to rattle off a few photos but it must have flown off whilst I was texting it out, as it was not there when I looked again. Despite checking all the walls I was unable to pick it up again.
Just a quick note from the 17th when in addition to the Spotted Flycatcher there were also 2 Twite, which flew over Taylor Lane. I had only stopped at that point as my attention was held up by two Weasel kits which had start play fighting in the road in front of me.
