You would struggle anyway Edward as we are down the hill somewhat!

I think you might see Great Haseley more easily as it's on the other side of us and Brill is so high up you may see it anyway.

I think this thread has accidentally deviated so much from 'Has anybody heard the cuckoo yet?' that I should start a new thread along the lines of 'How far can you see on a clear day?'

There are so many great vantage points for viewing the English landscape. I am sure PoE members have their own favourite viewing points which they can recommend.

Yes, good point Edward and thanks for starting the new thread.

As for the Cuckoo I haven't heard it again since so what's happened, has the weather had some kind of detrimental affect? The bird only has until June before it stops singing it's 'cuckoo' tune and before it then flies away, so c'mon Cuckoo where are you?

Anybody else heard the Cuckoo yet?

Not heard the Cuckoo yet but i have three nesting boxes around the back garden -a distance apart and two are being occupied by Blue Tits.

Plenty Blackbirds around as well as Goldfinch,Coal Tits,Siskins,and Bullfinch,but with all the nice birds we get the bad ones Wood Pigeons,Doves which are a nuisance due to two neighbours feeding them.Smile

Better get out in the garden with your hearing aid quickly then James as only another month before the Cuckoo will stop singing 'cuckoo' and fly away. The Cuckoo doesn't stay here long (it does it in the nest and disappears) a bit like some humans eh? lol
