We have two pairs of Great Tits in our garden, and they've started up with their incessant "Teacher! Teacher! Teacher!" on and on until we could scream. I think it's either a mating call or a territorial signal. Very irritating.
But the wood pigeons are still making us laugh. When we put bread scraps and bird food out on the lawn, they make a call which sounds exactly like "Fooood! Fooood!"
Magnolias are in full bloom around the village, and most trees & shrubs are in leaf. Our over-wintering Canada geese are honking overhead as they muster for the long flight home.
Haven't seen our village Mad Swans yet (the pair that waddle down the middle of the village street with their poor cygnets struggling along behind)
These lovely signs of Nature carrying on as usual are very reassuring during the present pandemic lockdown situation.
