Where are you at,sadly I have to drive upon Exmoor to hear one these days.When I was a kid mum would come up and open the bedroom window first thing in the morning when the cuckoo arrived to be heard,that was way back in the early sixties.

In May he sings all day.

Hearing one is becoming a much rarer occurrence these days as the numbers have fallen dramatically.

I heard a few in the forest early on in May, but nothing since then.

Re: Have you heard a Cuckoo yet this year

Some aren't staying long,I wonder if catching and tagging has an effect.
