A week in birding...

I was off on my family hols last week, so only fitting that some good birds turn up locally and I dip the lot.

It all started with this little chap - by far the best of the bunch, a Great Spotted Cuckoo, which was discovered on the cliffs above Branscombe in Devon and quickly relocated to Beer Head:

Alas it soon disappeared never to be seen again - how inconsiderate! Then the following turned up hot in its tracks...
