Cuckoos - St Dogmaels

This afternoon, while out working in my St Dogmaels garden, I thought I heard a Cuckoo.

Since we've got Song Thrushes in the area that think they're Water Rails, Greenshanks and Nuthatches, I was a bit sceptical, but a few seconds later two Cuckoos flew over from the south, one of them calling repeatedly, and headed across the Teifi estuary towards Ceredigion.

First garden tick in quite a long time!
