Spring is on the way, or so everyone is telling me. It doesn't feel like it is with the current temperatures, the hail, sleet and snow showers that we are having at the moment. There are signs though, that to me are the real signs of Spring. The birds are singing again, and if you're up early enough, the mornings are getting pretty noisy once more.
Along with the Robins and Blackbirds, one of my favourite birds to hear is the Song Thrush. Usually found atop a tall tree to get maximum effect, it runs through its repertoire of song, which can sound like car alarms, mobile phones or just pure mimicry of other birds songs. When it's all put together though, it's quite magical to listen too.
Spring is on the way. I know it is. The birds told me.
