    This is very sad to hear folks, thanks for letting me know if your hearing them or not.

    I was 14 the last time I heard one and was away on a fishing trip with the school team to Co.Fermanagh, I'm now in my forties!

    I hear them every year both on Dartmoor and Woodbury common in East Devon. Think numbers are declining but theres still some around.

    I hadn't heard a cuckoo in years and then this summer whilst on a trek in the Brecon Beacons I heard and watched one in the middle of absolute no-where in a little valley during early evening. It was flying to a hawthorn tree, doing the whole "Cuckoo" bit and then flying 100 yds up the valley following the stream, landing in another small tree and repeating the song... it was amazing, I was very close and it felt like a privilage to be an observer.

    I'm in Cornwall and have been fortunate to hear a cuckoo for the last few years but like Brigit, I've never seen one. Don't know why but I've always made a record in my diary of the first cuckoo I hear and the first swallow I see, this years cuckoo was on the 26th of May.

    Regards, Matt.

    I usually hear them in Kingswood near St Austell around end of April early may, you normally have to sit still a while, but they are there.
