Over the past two weeks or so I have been straining my ears to catch a call, but to no avail. Well, two days ago - April 24 to be exact - I finally heard the first cuckoo call of the year. The old nursery rhyme line "in May the cuckoo sings all day" should be just around the corner.
The incessant cuckoo calling over the next six weeks or so will provide the perfect soundtrack to accompany the insanity gripping this part of the world.
I can hardly wait!
