Driving over to Merthyr Common this morning, I saw to my right a young Cuckoo sitting on a wall. I managed to take one very bad photo with my phone before it flew onto another wall a little further away. I noticed a layby just along the road so pulled in, grabbed my camera and started to walk back then realised my battery had gone. Run back to the car, changed the battery, looked around and was pleasantly surprised to see a Meadow Pipit right next to the Cuckoo with food in its mouth. I only managed to rattle off a few record shots.
