As you say Pix, very striking, but did they run out of bricks?

What has happened to the elephant - is it so old it's going grey? Oh my

THE CUCKOO We once had a Cuckoo Day, 14th of April, but over the years it faded away. The general belief that this bird sits upon and lays eggs in the nests of other birds has long ago been denied and disproved. The cuckoo does not sit upon any nest, but, after reconnoitering a hedgerow, it lays its egg on the ground and carries it into any nest whose young are fed by insects, irrespective of its size or shape, hence the inclusion of such an egg in a domed nest. The cuckoo has a peculiarly-formed bill, and it can, and does, carry the egg with closed beak and insert it into any shaped nest, whether it be in a burrow or, as it sometimes happens, suspended from the roof. It's a mistake to say only a single egg is deposited. Many instances can be given of two such eggs, in such nests as doves, pipits,etc. The cuckoo is held in special aversion by other birds, and it may often be chased by one or two small birds. It is impossible to rear to a tame state a young cuckoo. It never loses its extremely wild nature.
