|Year-First Cuckoo at Paxton Pits|
A further 45-minutes drive across counties into Suffolk we arrived at Cavernham Heath mid-morning, the temperature already in the low 20's and cloudless skies. Parking up at the small roadside car park opposite the woodland trail we had literally only walked 100 yards when across the fields opposite at least two Woodlark could be heard singing distantly. That unmistakable song, sometimes referred to as a 'whistling yodel'. We never quite managed to connect with the birds at this point but Grey Partridge was recorded onto the day-list.

Oh, and a bonus year-tick on Teal Pool, Green Sandpiper!
