First Cuckoo, First Swallow

Today I saw the first Barn Swallow settle on the roof. Not migrating, staying. Les told me they’d been sweeping in and out of my porch all day yesterday, and had been hanging about since Tuesday.

Then we swapped stories of Barn Owls recently found dead – we had each reported the leg rings to the BTO.

Later on I heard my first CUCKOO of 2009. Fantastic.
