YELLOW-BILLED CUCKOO in PERTHSHIRE


YELLOW-BILLED CUCKOO picked up dead in Perthshire
The bird was picked up dead on Sunday 4 October after flying into the living room window of a house near Cromwell Park, Almondbank, Perth. A picture was taken of the mystery bird by Steve Keay and sent to a colleague the next day, which I identified when shown the picture. I then put out the news to Angus Murray at Birdline Scotland and RBA. The corpse has been frozen and we anticipate that it will be sent to the National Museum of Scotland (Chris Pendlebury)
