WHITLINGHAM: Cuckooland

16th June 2012

No sign of any White-winged Terns at Whitlingham today unfortunately, so that particular wait goes on.  walking along the rather overgrown riverside path I saw my first Banded Demoiselles of the year, all females.  There were large numbers of Common Blues, and a Blue-tailed as well.  The avian highlight of the trip was four Cuckoos, the first time I've seen more than two in the area.  One was on the island, one in the trees at the east end of the broad and two flew over from Thorpe Marsh.  One Common Tern flew along the north side of the broad as I walked back.
