Subject: RE: BS: Where can I hear a lark sing?
We're about 10 miles from the coast, near Elsing and Sparham.
We used to clean a holiday barn at Bale, not far from the Snorings (N Norfolk), and the wildlife there was truly wonderful. Lots of big hares loping around the fields, loads of fallow deer and several barn owls. They do indeed seem to race the car, as they fly parallel to the road above the drainage ditches and hedgerows looking for voles and mice.
Farmers have rather a bad time of it in some ways. We have two dairy farmers in our village and they're struggling with the low milk prices and high cost of cattle feed. TB is a worry; we have quite a lot of badgers and it's said they carry it. (Not sure if that's true)
Back to larks - I just love their song, but I wonder why it makes me feel emotional? The little birds sound so vulnerable and sweet I suppose.
