Saturday 14th October 10:30 - 11:30 | Northwood House

Beloved as the herald of spring, cuckoos have held a place in our affections for centuries. But the cuckoo is Nature’s most notorious cheat. Cuckoos across the world have evolved extraordinary tricks to manipulate other species into raising their young. How do they get away with it?  In his enormously engaging book, Professor Nick Davies reveals how cuckoos trick their hosts.

‘An amazing detective story by one of the country’s greatest field naturalists’, David Attenborough.
