Some more dirty twitching! I didn't expect to see another GS Cuckoo so soon after the patch bird at Beer Head (see HERE), thankfully this Portland bird looked far less knackered. It was a late afternoon visit as other commitments were prohibitive of spending much time there; it disappeared after about 5 secs initial viewing but did come back to the 'regular hedge' after an hour or so. Pics were challenging as the heat haze and light direction were BAD; if you read this blog regularly then you'll already be aware of my distaste towards strong Sunlight & heat haze for photography. My best shots were from when the Sun very briefly hid behind cloud but the bird was relatively distant and up a tree at that point. Here's a couple pics (more to come in a later post):

Great find Anthony Bentley!
