A couple of visits to Thorpe Station Marshes during the last week. On my first visit last Sunday I was observing a pair of Reed Warblers at the start of the path that leads to Bungalow Lane when I became aware of a Cuckoo calling very close by. It flew out from an Ivy covered tree and passed immediately overhead affording me the closest view of a Cuckoo that I think I have ever had!
A Cuckoo continued to call this weekend, however it was rather windy and most of the resident warblers stayed within cover. A Sedge Warbler did appear briefly above the reeds enabling a brief photo opportunity.
