Cuckoo returns to Wales!

The Common Cuckoo (Cumulus canorus) arrived back in Wales a few days ago after spending the winter months in Africa. A very strange and peculiar brood parasite bird that lays its eggs in the nests of other species.The male song, goo-ko, is sung during the breeding season in the perfect pitch of C. This weekend, country people all over Wales will be hearing the call as harbinger of spring and early summer and often celebrate its arrival. We will certainly here its call on our Wild Wales Walkabouts this spring. It is considered to be an omen of good luck to be the first to here its call in certain locales in Wales.
