The bad weather has continued this week and a couple of days have even felt cold enough to be winter. It used to get chilly on the east coast in November, now it takes until February. And we are nearly back into spring. You will have noticed that there is a lot more bird song in the morning – robin and blackbird particularly. The blue tits have even started to sing a bit around the Kirkyard which is quite early. I have been enjoying the song thrushes particularly. They seem to sing more in bad rainy weather. Cutting their losses perhaps – they might as well sing as do anything else. Their song is very loud, varied and melodic, with each short phrase repeated twice, so quite distinctive.
