Pied flycatcher singing at Hudswell Woods this morning, on the top edge of Calfhall wood, just east of the caravan site. Not a regular visitor to this part of the woods so quite interesting.

I take it back... sand martins back in the village. Also, watched a female cuckoo working a reeded drain from the adjoining willow trees. She would fly to and land vertically on the trunk of a tree like a giant treecreeper before dropping in to the dyke and returning to the willows. Fascinating. Second cuckoo in two years after a long absence.
