Pining for the fjords?
As I was on a run around the neighbourhood last week I spotted this dead bird on the pavement. It didn't look like it had died from injuries or an accident, but dead it was! It is (was!) an unusual and pretty thing as you can see. On further investigation it turns out to be a "chestnut-winged cuckoo", probably en route south, migrating for the Winter. This one just didn't make it for some reason. Shame.
