Clock the Cuckoo

This afternoon Paul and I paid visits to firstly Spadeoaks Gravel Pits, Little Marlow and then later Otmoor.
At Spadeoaks; Yellow-legged Gull (2), Little-ringed Plover (3), Dunlin, Common Tern.

At Otmoor not quite the quality of birds as on our recent visits, however, we were delighted to observe a juvenile Cuckoo being fed by a pair of Reed Warblers. On one occasion a Reed Warbler landed on the demanding juvenile Cuckoo's back, fed it then flew off in search of more food.
