I came out to the caravan that is parked just outside my house, just to check a few things in preparation for a planned outing.

Thought I would have a 'sit down' to think about anything I may have omitted.

Noticed the cacophony of birdsong going on all around me, it is beautiful; I love this time of year.

Decided to stay out in the caravan a while longer to listen and enjoy.

Sorry if this is boring to others, but the avian orchestra is presenting a wonderful performance tonight.

Simple pleasures can be so good.

It's hard to beat just stopping for a while and just enjoying the little things.

I am happy with the birdsong but it is the mess they leave on the car on a daily basis that I hate. They do seem to fly between our house and the one next door and every morning another white patch arrives. Hope that we can get away from them on site though but if they are determined they may follow us.

Same for us. Our phone line crosses the drive and the little blighters sit on it using my car for target practice.

I love listening to and watching the garden birds; I even appreciate the wood pigeons and their comedic antics... but a pair of Peacocks (yes both male) seem to have taken up residence in our area. They are massive and their "song" is not in the slightest bit enjoyable!

This is a lovely topic,,,I mentioned something similar to my other half when we were away last time,,it's so nice to hear them each morning,,and indeed during the day.

Strangely enough, although we have them here at home too I tend not to notice it so much.

Fully agree , beautiful singing. The sparrows nest under our porch roof, fly over the cars for their daily ablutions then into the field for breakfast. Shame the mess shows up more on our black cars but the songs are well worth it B)

Talking about bird song, we live in a village surrounded by woodland. Everything used to live and sing around us, nightingales -- haven't heard 'em for years, cuckoos - again haven't heard one for years
- here or when away in the van, and this year we are struggling to see any martins, swifts, swallows, they seem to have not come this year! Where are they all? What's it like elsewhere?

We have a several Canada Geese that travel to /from ponds near us, different Airborne fleets , from About 6 am and at night from about 8pm. With a few " Dam busters at about 10 pm. Wonderful to watch at just above the house by maybe 20 foot. Have to get the drone up and get a video of them incoming. .
