David Francis, Lawrie Conole, and Andrew Brown starred this.

  1. David Francis  Clearly showing the dark stripe through the eye and ear-coverts and barring missing from a wide area of the middle of the breast which distinguishes it from the similar Shining Bronze Cuckoo.

  2. David Francis  Sparrow-like chirrup at first with main call starting at about 38 seconds from start.(Descending, repeated whistle).
