may day, campion, may blossom, no revellers, no cuckoo, but excellent curlews



Into work first thing - though I had enough time in hand for a walk along the Thames to Port Meadow from Osney.

No sign of the 27,000 revellers, who turned out for May Morning in the High Street to hear the choristers on Magdalen Tower.

Got home about 1.30 pm and went for a lovely stroll with J and T. We took the route that brings you out at the southern end of Marsh Lane, where J heard the first cuckoo on 20th April. I lived in hope but there was no sign... Excellent trills from the curlews, though.
