you to Phil Wilson, Aberdeen, Scotland, who wrote:
"For the curious, the bird that
Charles Reid is holding is a young Cuckoo, so the photo will have been
taken, in view of the birds size, probably round about August, and at any
event in late summer)."

quite right, Phil. The bird is a young cuckoo. I included that
in the title of the photo but I forgot to mention it in the caption when I
added the photo to the web site yesterday.
