Took a couple of walks across Buller Downs on Monday and Tuesday Morning, this is fast becoming a favourite place for me as the photo opportunities are very good. Another factor is that every time I hear and get distant views of a Cuckoo which I would like to Photograph, but these are very flighty birds and are off at the first sign of me. So on Tuesday morning with a lot of Sea Mist coming in from the coast, I could hear it calling further along the lane, so decided to just move quietly along when Whoosh a bird went past me at shoulder height about four feet away. Another Cuckoo heading in the direction of the calling one, and it landed fifty feet away in the bottom of a gorse bush for about five seconds so did I get it well!!!
Also this week I managed to get the Moth trap out for the first time, but very little to show not surprising really as I have now lost the large Sycamore at the back of the house, The farmer had it cut down as it was becoming a bit of a hazard. So here are a few images from the last couple of days.
