Both sessions spent a lot of time with our most reliable male Cuckoo. Another was heard further along the canal. However, there was no evidence that a female was present. The Reed Warbler actually showed better than the Sedge Warblers, and both became almost impossible to see when the clouds came over & the squally winds associated with them flurried the canal's surface. There were plenty of Yellowhammers, Reed Buntings, Orange Tips, Speckled Woods, and a whole Long-tailed Tit family.
