Great Spotted Cuckoo
A trip up to Dorset today to look for the 1st summer Great Spotted Cuckoo that was found at Reap Lane yesterday and the bird showed very well for most of the day flying from a row of trees to some bushes to feed on caterpillars , this was my 4th in Britain since my first one back in 1990 at Dawlish Warren , also seen were 2 Spotted Flycatcher and a female Common Redstart all seen in glorious weather !! , the day was finished off at Broadcroft Quarry where the following Butterflies were seen , 2 Small Blue ( Britain`s smallest Butterfly ) and a Dingy Skipper .
