All hell broke loose when I realised it wasn't a sparrowhawk sitting on our garden fence yesterday:
The word WOW seems so inadequate!
EDIT: It's a young cuckoo.
Our herring gulls are red listed birds. Think about that the next time you hear some flaming idiot calling for a cull of them.
LOL Clare, as I said on Limpy's thread, I bet you couldn't believe your eyes !! what a fabulous bird to have visit the garden and such beautiful photos taken by both of you; thanks for sharing :) hope it hangs around a little longer before it heads out of the country so get some live mealworms !!

And I'd opt for "hyper-wow" (mega is so overused these days...)

LOL! You're not Craig Revel Horwood, are you?
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
By the way, if you thought our cuckoo was a fantastic garden sighting you'll want to check out this thread!
