3-05-07 Cuckoo,Cuckoo,Cuckoo

Back inland looking for Summer migrants plenty of Blackcaps & Whitethroats singing also heard Green Woodpecker & a first for me Cuckoo and Tawny Owl calling at the same time, went off to look for the Cuckoo ended up with three not sure if the third was male or female but two males chased each other and I think the other was a female drawn in by the call, the bird in the photo is showing either threat or submission with it wings slightly open and dropped it eventually flew off .
A distant Marsh Harrier went over mobbed by a Curlew, also two soaring Buzzards and a single Kestrel with two GSW and my first Spotted Flycatcher of the year, Treecreeper, Nuthatch plus the usual cast of extras
Two Cuckoos, one in the tree wings drooped

Willow Warbler
