Cuckoo in Devon

Its hard to describe just how beautiful Devon is in the spring - see photos beneath. A wonderful bank holiday weekend camping with old diving friends in East Prawle, with two beautiful days on Mill Bay exploring the rock-pools and coastal walks. Several times over the weekend we heard the call of a cuckoo deep in the woods above the beach and watched jays, crows and buzzards flying over. The buzzards were clearly nesting and you could hear their distinctive calls among the high trees and I also saw one carrying a stick. The woods were exploding with new growth and the blue bells were astonishing, such a part of my childhood exploring the woods of Norfolk and Essex and such a distinctive part of the English seasonal landscape.
