Worth going back for...

Andy Grinter chose to go to Cornwall the week after Dave H and although the Moltoni's had gone, it was soon replaced by an even better mega in the form of a yanky Yellow-billed Cuckoo! Definitely the place to have been last week. Thanks to Andy for supplying some of his photos from his Cornish break and Dave Helliar who having just returned, had to head back again for the cuckoo (see pics).
