Today was tedious. Nearly as tedious as yesterday. And that was tedious too. So far this year, waders in the Viet-cram patch have numbered one fly-over Redshank, Oycs and a Ringed Plover. Yesterday's Arcot Cuckoo has gone, it appears. Despite two rounds of the patch, nowt new. This little chap was this morning's entertainment at Wessie. Unsure why he looks so bedraggled. Just out the nest hole?

Cuckoo has been at Arcot since Sunday morning - still there at 11am today (16th) and feeding like a mad thing on what I believe to be Drinker Moth caterpillars. It's a lean, mean, caterpillar-eating machine.
