Cuckoo Under Attack!

Had a walk down the Humber at Paull on Saturday evening, I noticed this cuckoo perched on the fence posts that run along the bank.
In between trying to feed it was constantly being harassed by a pair of meadow pipits (probably due to its resemblance to a bird of prey.
At one point there were too cuckoos but the efforts of the pipits saw the other one off.
There were very few waders were on the mudflat, with no avocets at all.
Managed a nice view of a short eared owl hunting on the farmland.
