Most people will be familiar with the Common cuckoo, the bird with the unmistakeable song that lays its eggs in the nests of other bird species who then raise the cuckoo chick although it were their own.

Less well known is the fact that there are bees with a similar habit to that of the cuckoo.

As the birds revered for stamina arrive, so too has our own. After three weeks of challenging surveying, our legs, feet and minds are strong; walking further, faster and for me anyway, straighter! Living and working in the Scottish Highlands is just magic. Waking to the sound of a calling cuckoo, drumming snipe and shouts of “ quick, quick, there’s a red squirrel in the garden!”, is definitely not being taken for granted.
