Cuckoo Twitch – 13/iii/14

I took the train to Penally at and arrived around four. When I arrived, I was told that the bird had just flown of and out of sight. After the best part of an hour, the GREAT-SPOTTED CUCKOO was refound at a range of about 700m and I managed to get onto it. Everybody approached it carefully, and eventually everybody got cracking views of the bird in the sunny evening light.
