It’s the longest day today, which is very true as mine started just after 3am when the sound of birdsong hit the air in triplicate as I recognised pigeons, blackbirds and robins. I wonder how many of us remember the ‘turns’ in Variety Halls or Entertainment Shows where someone would imitate bird song. They were very popular when I was growing up, yet you don’t see anything like that now.
Maggie decided she wanted to go out at 4.30, and it was quite light. The birds were still in full voice, singing away to each other atop posts, roofs and aerials, some starlings already on the grass after the worms. I wonder if worms actually respond to bird song like snakes do to the charmer’s music? Now there’s a thought.
The sun comes up at the front of the house and we’ve been down on the beach to see the birth of the new day on several occasions. It is truly wonderful to see and be a part of.
It promises to be a glorious day, one of the hottest so far, so we will be walking the dog shortly then staying in until the early afternoon.
Not much on the agenda today, shopping, washing and housework are all up straight, and the curry mix is soaking for dinner.
