Female Cuckoo

Talked to Chris on his way back this morning, we both reported not seeing a female Cuckoo or a Willow Warbler this year and then half and hour later, found both. The Cuckoo flew out of the willow trees opposite the feeders and settled on the steel post, see photo, the Willow Warbler was in the reed bed, opposite the path in the middle of the fishing pond.

Also came across a small flock of Eider Duck in the channel, made up of mostly males.
