The above photograph was taken on 1st May at Wrabness Nature Reserve. It was during one of those very rare events these days, a warm sunny afternoon, and my wife and I decided to take some exercise. This was one of many clumps of these flowers which I believe are wild strawberries, found along the footpaths under the hedgerows. At least I believe this is what it was although I haven't come across it previously.
Incidently while at the reserve we heard our first Cuckoos, 3 at seperate locations and a fourth actually seen. However the best of the afternoon was while we were in the hide when we were suddenly treated to the song of a nightingale which had perch on the inside of the hide with us, The back of the hide is open to the elements. It then flew into the lower branches of a nearby tree in full view of us to contnue its song.
On returning home I checked the BTO website, and their cuckoo survey, noted by Graham earlier, and found that his 'Chris' was in Epping. So about that time the Cuckoos must have all decided the time was right for them to migrate. We thought this was absolutely fascinating.
