Cuckoo's

Whilst out walking up pwll yr lwrch today tony and myself came across two cuckoo's chasing each other before 1 disappeared towards nanty, the other bird came back and landed on a lamppost enabling me to get a couple of record shots, but when the bird flew past us, we noticed a transmitter looking object sticking up from it's rump, i've emailed the bto for more information and have asked them if they think it is a transmitter. As soon as i get more info i will post an update. Also yellow hammer carrying nesting material, song thrush on nest, willow warbler and blackcap in song
