This display of arial antics lasted, in total, for at least 45 mins. and must have exhausted the birds. They have, after all, just migrated up from south central Africa. You can read about Clement the cuckoo on the BTO website: he was fitted with a tracker in Thetford, Norfolk and went south to the DR Congo.
It was entrancing to watch and we scurried for the camera and followed the arial display as best we might. We did manage to get a few decent photos.
