Colin the cuckoo

Yesterday @leahpinkphotography and I visited Thursley Common in hope to see the famous Colin the Cuckoo!

After getting lost – thank you so much to @henryk_photo for directing us!! We finally found the field!

We waited for about two hours, photographing Redstarts and Wheatears in between!

After two hours we heard the cuck-ooo cuck-ooo and minutes after, Colin flew onto the post! It was amazing- one of the best experiences ever! I have never seen a cuckoo before so seeing one that close was just unreal!

He stayed for about 10 minutes feeding in front of us and hopping around just metres from us!

It was such a great experience and I hope to go back soon to see him again!
