Who has seen what? 30/06/2016

Seen beside a local road – Roadkill ?

Coming back home from the Struie Road; a dead bird to one side. It was medium size-ish but colourfull yet whiteish under-neath.  Curious as to what it was, this is what I found to photograph:-

What is it?
Why it’s a young Cuckoo.
The first I have ever seen in the hand as it were. Sadly dead probably hit by a car.

What struck me though was the beautiful colouration of the bird, I knew they were brownish but not how lovely. Lets hope that some more fledged and are able to come and brighten up our spring next year.
