A very quick reconsideration

A very quick reconsideration on my part - is it a Cuckoo? Identify in haste, repent at leisure.

There is just something rather odd about the head that I noticed as soon as I had posted the ID. Yes, it is unusual to see a Cuckoo on the ground, but it happens.

Cuckoo?

A cuckoo on the ground would be a rare sight. If it were, at a quick glance you would be likely to think that it was a short-legged sparrowhawk.
