    Shows a cuckoo making its characteristic sound from a branch on a tree. The caption begins with an extract from a 'Daily Paper' linking the hearing of the cuckoo's 'welcome notes' to the 'mildness of the season'. The caption also explains that the cuckoo 'wishes she had not been such a fool' because she has a cold in the head which has caused her call to change to 'cuck-a'tchew'.
