Abstract

On the 26th ult. (June), while driving to Swansea with
Mr. Wragge, a beautiful adult example of Cuculus ftabelliformis
(Fantailed cuckoo) flew across the road near Apsley.
The tract of country being passed through was mixed gum,
she-oak (Casuarina), and Oyster Bay pine bush, and the cuckoo
lodged on a branch by the side of the road, affording us a
good view of its plumage. Such a late occurrence of this
migrant is worthy of record.
