Cuckoos in Bexley

With two reports of cuckoos so far in Bexley, readers might be interested in the British Trust for Ornithology’s tracking scheme.

Over 50% of cuckoos in Britain have been lost in the last 20 years, so research and records are important to our understanding of this bird and its requirements.

Local records:

Karen Sutton gives us a report of a cuckoo calling in Lesnes Abbey woods on 15th April.

Roger Taylor reported a cuckoo on the Crossness protected Area at 7:30am on 17th April.
