I hear singing and there are Birdies near
I smell blossoms and the trees are bare
All day long I hear songs in the air
I wonder what
I wonder what

Early Morning Birdy Walk Good Friday 14th April 7am-9am
Early morning walk along the lanes, stopping to watch and listen as you go.
Meet at St Andrew's Church
Days are lengthening and dunnocks, great tits and robins begin to sing, marking their territories with song to make sure they have enough food for when the young ones hatch later. As weeks go by, other birds join in the singing, and by March all the resident birds are at it.
Would you like to know what the birds you can hear singing are? Which ones are bringing your garden and our village alive? Come to this early morning walk, which is free and led by local ecologist Catherine Mowat. If you like, you could bring a smart phone along to record the songs and help you learn them. There's no need to book, just turn up, but if you would like to know more, contact Catherine on 01458 250655.
