Geltsdale Wildlife is on the up!
As we watched it mobbing a buzzard for 10 minutes I decided I wanted a closer look so I headed up the fell trying to take it easy with my bad foot but so keen to get up their and get a decent view. On my way up the track I heard a nearby cuckoo calling so I tried to pick it up in the binos as they are normally quite hard to see after hearing their call I was delighted to see it on a nearby bush and got a record photo of the first cuckoo of the year. As watching the bird I looked up and right above me was the SEO mobbing a Buzzard along with a Curlew and Lapwing! unreal scenes as I watched for 5 minutes but could not quite get a decent photo of the event.
