An afternoon walk around the reserve was pretty productive. A large party of 40+ Crossbill flew over noisily near the Pylons. Other birds noted were: Green Woodpecker, Jay, Chaffinch, Chiffchaff, Nuthatch, Stonechat, Siskin and best of all two and possibly three Cuckoos. My first of the year. I have attached two very poor record shots of the cuckoos!
