Strange Bird noise

Last Thursday we heard a very weird sound coming from the tree's at the front of our house, it sounded like a distress call, a loud Keey-ock Keey-ock. Didn't know what it was and couldn't see anything, the following day same thing happened but again no bird could be seen although the calls where coming from different tree's during the day. Then i spotted something flying low above our Pom tree's, it looked like a small falcon but with a more laboured flight, as a lover of birds of prey i didn't recognise it so researched my books and still couldn't find what it was. Then yesterday i spotted it again sitting in the top of the tree and could clearly see it, but still didn't recognise it. After hours of research on internet i eventually found it, a Great Spotted Cuckoo.
Anyone else seen these? are they common here?

Re: Strange Bird noise

The Great Spotted Cuckoo (Clamator glandarius) is a member of the cuckoo order of birds, the Cuculiformes, which also includes the roadrunners, the anis and the coucals.
It is a widespread summer migrant to southeast and southwest Europe and western Asia, and winters in Africa. It is a brood parasite, which lays its eggs in the nests of corvids (especially magpies), and starlings.
