Dear Mr editor,
May I crave the hospitality of you excellent Blog to announce, once more, that I have heard the first cuckoo of 2021. It was at 9 25 this morning (Saturday), from the vicinity of Maltkiln Woods. What a treat for May Day!
I concede that I might not have the “scoop” on this, as I have been away for a few days, visiting a Gentleman Friend in Kent. I suppose a cuckoo can always slip one past you when you are not listening.
That notwithstanding, it is nice to see that Spring is officially here and with lockdown nearly over, we can all begin to get back in the saddle again.
I wish everyone a splendid spring and an even better summer.
Amelia Badger (Mrs)
