• Cuckoo - All the way from Africa

Countryfile and Me


Today is the day in which I appear on Countryfile on BBC1 at 7.00pm, and a couple of days ago I heard my first cuckoo of the Spring near a local nature reserve, such a beautiful sound.

Cuckoos are very vocal

and the male enjoys showing off his wonderful tail to the female to attract a mate, the female makes this bubbling sound in response to his attentions and they flutter from post to post.

The Dawn Chorus is also in full voice and there is an Evening Chorus to go with it which is equally wonderful. I have made a number of recordings for a forthcoming exhibition later this year and will post once I have some more news about it all. Meanwhile I hope you enjoy my interview with Steve Brown this evening as much as I enjoyed making it. The team were all lovely and very welcoming and they all care very much about British wildlife.
