Cuckoos in the mist

Since my last posting about cuckoos see here – I have been trying to get a photo of them eating the hairy caterpillars. Today in the early morning mist a got a distant shot of one eating a pale grass eggar and using the fence posts for convenient perching places. The best area to watch this is the western part of the Beach Reserve.
