The first cuckoo!
Author: 20th May 2020
This is the path right where I heard the ‘first cuckoo of spring’ this year.
But to tell the truth this is the first time I have heard a cuckoo at all for some years. I’ve not been out walking anything like enough to experience the woods and all the birdsong until the lockdown happened. I’ve walked every path in the nearest bits of open space to my home (I live on the edge of Oxford) and I’ll definitely be continuing to do so. Some of these paths are overgrown and poorly maintained – we should ensure that they feel safe and welcoming.
