    Default Blooming dawn chorus

    There's been this noisy bird waking me up before dawn for at least 6 months. I thought he'd bog off in the winter back to Africa or spain or somewhere, but he's still there. and now he has a gang.

    He was squawking away this a.m. , I don't know what he said that was so interesting but the rest of them re-tweeted it for an hour

    Just hum "all thing bright & beautiful" to yourself in the mornings - you'll be fine
    How fortunate for governments that the people they administer don't think

    Ok stick with me on this, from personal experience if you place a snail on your bedroom window, outside obviously. They will attempt to fly and grab the snail and in doing so will hit the window at full force. They wont feel like singing again for a while.

    This works, I can produce photographic proof.

    You could hear the birds last night/this morning ? Down my way the storm was so loud I could hardly hear myself sleep.

    Reminds me of when we used to save the bread from the meal and scatter it on the roofs of other canal boats on the way home. Ducks walking on your roof make a lot of noise on a canal boat in the dawn chorus

    Nearly this.....

    Sellotape bird food to the inside of the window, or, put out some bird seed mixed with yeast, watch it inflate and explode. Simples.
    On Desolation Boulevard, they'd light the faded lights.....
