Every day the male cuckoo flies around Blacka calling out "Where Are You?" in the hope of finding a female who wishes to be found.
The same question is being asked about cuckoos in general by those who busy themselves every so often alarming us with stories about wildlife in peril. And doubtless there are problems and some of them are serious. But one can't help thinking that a small part of the story is about conservation people reminding the public that they themselves exist and are doing a fine job.
