The confirmation of Spring: Cuckoos and Bluebells

Bluebells.  Fuji F10
15th May 2013

The bluebells have been out for a few days now, but this morning was the first time I have heard a cuckoo this Spring: it is official now.

The bird nesting seems to have been a bit erratic this year with the weather going warm-cold-warm-cold, but there do seem to be fledgeling blackbirds in the garden which is nice.

I had worried the blackbirds were planning to nest in the Jostaberry again this year; they would be a bit exposed though as I cut it down to a stump at the end of the summer.
