The year’s first cuckoo was heard in the reserve this week.

    1. Cathy, Rosemary heard one when she was cycling past Fairwood Lakes on Wednesday.

  1. We hear them every year in April or May. We don’t have the right habitat to attract the reed warblers that are being parasitised in the video but we do have dunnock and meadow pipit, two other species whose nests a cuckoo will use.
    We think, though, that when a cuckoo is heard in the park, it is passing through on its way to the Avon’s many reed beds, looking for reed warbler nests.
