Colin the cuckoo is perhaps one of the most photographed Cuckoos in the UK, with many visiting Thursley Common every summer to meet this charismatic, obliging bird. He had been visiting the site since 2015, however, sadly failed to return this summer. This piece is now a tribute to him - fly high Colin!
