    About 7 yesterday eveniing at the top of Sheppards Combe near Bicknoller Post. First of the year for me, Summer’s on it’s way 🙂

    disappointed not to hear one on dartmoor yesterday.

    there are three or four spots where i ride that have a (briefly) resident cuckoo. always a warming sound.

    I can confirm they are in S/Spain. They have been here for a 3 weeks. Roll on summer 🙂

    jambo – cuckoo rock indeed although i always thought that it was a little closer to the scout hut but it’s hard to pinpont it. certainly always one in that area.

    sharki – golden dagger/challacombe area is another as is the woods at natsworthy at the bottom of hameldown. this wood has been thinned out a lot but the cuckoo returned last year.

    maybe it was still a tad early for them yesterday.

    cool
