Thread Name: Cornish Nightingale
Subject: RE: Cornish Nightingale
Whilst us car travelling humans may find the distance from Dorset to Cornwall a long haul, for migrating song birds its a mere flap of the wing, take Swallows, Swifts, etc etc, South Africa to Worcestershire as your maiden flight and thats not even taking into consideration being blown off course by strong winds. (As per my previous post, they do not arrive in the UK until April).
With all that in mind its quite feasible that there may have been Nightingales in Cornwall - and Berkley Square, for that matter.
Or........ maybe it was the only birdie name that fitted.
