  2. Some great shooting there lads, keep it up. Dropped on a place last week where the farmer has had three large Cubs recently in the trap but the adults wouldn’t go near it, except when the safety was on! What’s all that about? Anyway, I picked out a cub mousing on arrival. Always nice to start with a success. Walked on and sat in amongst the rabbits was a big dog fox. He got the same treatment, the Hornet .22. Hopefully it was one of the trap shy foxes. Spotted another but it knew the script and was off. Love the nights drawing in 👍🏻
  3. Here’s a young cuckoo chick I was watching during the summer. I watch and study cuckoos so have a pretty good idea when the female is due to lay and in what area. This young ‘un fledged but I don’t know how it fared in the big wide world of preditors on the moor. It’s strange to think it could return and parasitise the very birds that reared it 👍🏻

    Cuckoo

    I spend six or seven weeks during spring and early summer watching cuckoos on the local moor. I’ve always had a fascination with them. This year was identical to the previous years...and another nest predated by the regular female bird into a meadow pipits nest. The resultant chick should be gone by now, this photo is from last Thursday. I followed it from the day it was laid on 10th June 👍🏻🤞🏻

    Cuckoos

    A female was recorded as laying 25 in a season after nest manipulation but the norm is 5-6 depending on host availability and condition of the female.

    Cuckoos

    Watched one laying a couple of years ago, being mobbed by at least six pipits.Amazing that her egg was accepted. The male plays no part in the female laying other than encouraging her from a distance with his calling

    Cuckoos

    I don’t know about scaring host birds. When I’ve ever seen a cuckoo gliding over a meadow, it’s being mobbed by pipits
