One of my interests since moving here has been the vast variety of birds we see on a daily basis. Most of them are familiar and repeatedly seen. Others are much more unexpected and unusual. Sitting in the garden last week we spotted an unfamiliar bird. It sat patiently on a branch as I took some pictures.
Within a few minutes it was on it’s way, much to the relief of the other birds no doubt wary of the cuckoo.
A chance encounter, just a few minutes long with a bird that has excited the birding community.
