sat prowl / Cuckoo / Egret

Drove down to catch DK & DCJ's Cuckoo
(image on on DCJ's site ------> )

The Heron rang with his reward after a 14 hour session on foot ! :- "Egret going over East" - heading towards home !

Dipped the Cuckoo & in all probability drove underneath that flying Egret !


Prowled around - listening out for Gropper more than anything,
but:-
TO family at Rms very entertaining
Young very proficient flyers already !
Mixed results from sev LEO pairs - birds bit late going onto eggs
Had a BO hunting close to male LEO as he displayed but took no notice of Barnie.
Later silhoutted views of BO in nest tree
TO calling from a non breeding farmstead
LO calling from an area where havnt as yet confirmed a breeding pair.

------------------------------

New breeding pair of BO discovered in Derwentside. (JG)
