The first sound of summer !

Scanning cows on a dairy farm  in County Limerick.The silence of the scanning, the cows in the milking parlor and  the piercing sound of the cuckoo bird. I  had not expected to hear the sound of the cuckoo as it is now rather rare to hear her voice in the landscape of Ireland. The young child in the parlor had never heard the sound of the cuckoo before. The parents  had to explain about the significance of the sound to child. The farmer turned around and said  and said to me  it is a sign of summer.The habitat of the cuckoo is down along by the Shannon estuary from Limerick city - a marshy type soil with forestry in the background.
