    Hear them or is that it every year. Now I know they are a bit of a naughty bird but it is so lovely to hear them isn't it - sort of makes you think we might get a summer.
    Two things are infinite: the Universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the Universe.

    Two in Armadale, one in the valley of the Armadale Burn, one on the hill in the village. They can just about hear each other, so I'm expecting the arguments to start up soon!

    We have one here on the Hill of Forss; we've heard him every day for more than a week now. My husband saw him last night flying by cuckoo'ing as he went.

    It's lovely lying in bed hearing the cuckoo early in the morning - bliss.

    Initially hear one in Torrisdale at about 17:30, several minutes later heard another one returning call.
    Went on for about 10 minutes with both birds trying to outdo one another
