On hearing the first cuckoo in spring .. the thud of a bird hitting the glass door. Usually it's a Spotted Dove, but today at 9.00 a.m. a Fantailed Cuckoo was clinging to the cross-bar, stunned and motionless. I took a couple of poorly focussed photos while Brian walked round the house to put a tea-towel over it. We put it into a shoebox for an hour to recuperate in peace and safety. An hour later it was released and flew off, apparently unharmed.
