Cuckoo at Greylake

Whilst at Greylake today nearing the furthest viewing point came upon a newly fledged Cuckoo sat in a hedge barely 6 feet away. It remained motionless for a number of minutes before retreating further back into the hedge.There was further back a small agitated bird which I took to be it's unwitting parent. Appeared to be a Reed Warbler.In all my time birdwatching I have never experienced this before.
