Cuckoos, swifts and swallows

If anyone is feeling bereft at not hearing a cuckoo this year, we heard two calling around Kilmar and Hawks Tor yesterday and they may well still be on Kit Hill where they were first heard by Peter C on April 19th. Craddock Moor is another area that you can walk to from Minions.

But there is now concern about the lack of Swifts this year and they were not at Truro cattle market when we were at the Hardy Plant Sale three weeks ago. We noted 7 flying down above the river Lynher mid month and saw one at Pentire Head. So worth noting and sending in records.

And numbers also down for swallows. Hopefully, those that are here will have a good breeding season.
