Heard a cuckoo this morning.

I am surprised how thrilled I was to hear it. It seems a little early, but perhaps I am wrong.
Has anyone else heard one yet?

It’s about the right time to hear a cuckoo. I’m envious as I’ve not heard one for years. I’ve not seen any swallows or house martins yet. They’re another sure sign of Spring.

Yes, they have heard them here for about a week. Didn't think that it was especially early though I am not sure.

Have you watched this?

I heard one last week. I remember hearing them frequently as a child but not so often these days .

On that site two had been traced to Suffolk.
