Early birds catch the Cuckoo

We were lucky enough to watch a rusty brown juvenile Cuckoo perched on fence posts for over 15 minutes down the Southam Road first thing. Although a fields width away we had excellent scope views allowing views of the white nape patch.
The pond was duller than yesterday morning and the wind a lot stronger so we walked to rainbow corner for shelter getting our normal fare of Yellow-legged Gulls with at least 4 present, juvenile and 3 x 3rd years. Only other birds of note were 250 Swift, 20+ Sand Martin, Raven, Buzzard and Great-spotted Woodpecker.
It started raining while we were at Brandon Marsh so just a group of 8 Teal and a Little Ringed Plover seen.
