How nice, I wish we had one here, or perhaps not they are rather cruel. According to the traditional poem;
The Cuckoo comes in April
She opens her bill in May
In changes her song in June
In July she flies away.
So she should still be around yet.

I heard one a few times in May but I also would have thought they'd have stopped cuckooing by now. Nice to hear it though :o)
