Also spotted were a load of Peacock Butterfly caterpillars nibbling on the nettles.

This bird had been eluding me all day, every time I got the binoculars out he would fly further away. He looked like a very dark bird of prey at first until I saw the beak. It was longer than a bird of prey's beak so it must of been a Cuckoo. Although not heard "Cuckooing" it was identified through the binoculars. I then attempted to take a picture with my phone through the binoculars, here is the result. It is a Cuckoo, honest.
