Because The Towers is on a small estate, at the end of a road to nowhere, it is a very, very quiet place to live, the main sounds we hear come from the birds…………. however, as strangers to bird song, Nigel has taken to catching up on and listening to Tweet of the Day in an effort to learn what species are making all the racket!Naturally, the chances of it being an ostrich are very small …….
….. so for the moment he is just concentrating on our native British birds ….
…… and now, down to his due diligence, he can confidently recognise a blackbird, a seagull and a herd of Canada Geese, who are particularly vocal at 8, 9 and sometimes 10 o’clock at night, even though it’s dark. He is also hoping to learn a robin and a thrush, but he says, it takes time as all the other birds get in the way …… what is he like?
