Juvenile Cuckoo



I came across this juvenile Cuckoo quite recently at Cliffe RSPB whilst looking for the Stilts, its not that often that you see a juv let alone get pretty close to it.


Eyeing the Fly




Whilst waiting for the adults to feed it, which were Reed Warblers from the brief glimpse I got of them, it was quite obvious that it had a voracious appetite.


Food





Any passing insect, including the Bee above was viewed with relish, I suspect that both adults, given its size, had a hard job satisfying its hunger,calling was constant.
