Early morning visit to Ashley Walk in the New Forest today.  Quite a few Cuckoo about, including one that flew in close (while I was watching a Redstart) and then got mobbed by what I think was a Tree Pipit. Will try for these Cuckoos again I think - stil potential to get better photos.

In the same area this morning, Wheatears, Dartford Warbler and an Adder.  The Adder was right in the middle of the track and I didn't spot it until it suddenly coiled up and hissed.  I must have been about a foot away from stepping on it.
