Great Spotted Cuckoo

A Great Spotted Cuckoo seen in Pembrokeshire earlier this year. Like our Common Cuckoo the Great Spotted Cuckoo is parasitical, choosing corvids or starlings as its host, but it doesn't eject the chicks or eggs from the nest. Instead they just tend to fail to compete with the cuckoo chick.
