Horsfield’s Bronze-Cuckoo at the barn

Captured this footage of the Horsfield’s Bronze-Cuckoo (Chrysococcyx basalis) in early-November 2021 with a Canon RP and RF 800mm IS F11 hand-held. I think I may have discovered a new ‘martial art-form’, trying to hold a telephoto lens steady whilst several blowflies crawl up and down your bare-legs, and in and out of your facial-orifices, needs much practice.
