Cows and cuckoos

One afternoon in the South Indian Hindu holy town of Gokarna, I was unable to decide which way to walk after sitting and writing in a café for several hours. Fortunately in India there is always a holy cow that will lead the way, though sometimes in her wisdom she decides that we are better off following a circle back to where we started!

After a long walk on the moors, I was making my way back to the car through Hamsterley Forest in County Durham when I paused to listen to this cuckoo.
