First Cuckoo this moring.....

Up early and through the cool of the morning a nice clear cuckoo calling for quite a while.  The earliest I have heard it here was 19th April in 2006

I havn,t heard a cuckoo for a long time

I was on holiday in Tuscany last week and there was a cuckoo which called all day long, it was lovely to hear it.
There was also a bird that sang beautifully all night long, would I be right thinking it was a nightingale or are there other birds which sing through the night ?

I've heard 2 this year. Both on Thetford forest. We had one in the field behind our house a few years ago and it was the first time I had ever seen one.
