I now very little about birds (feathered variety). So I am
asking for your help on this one.
The snow has only just melted in Newcastle Upon Tyne
and we could get more. Yet this weekend Mrs Blackbird
has started telling me off and challenging me when I go
into the garden for a smoke. This is a sure sign that she
is feeling broody. But surely it is far too early in the year
for such friskiness.
So, perhaps an ornithologist out there could tell me – is
she doing the right thing or should I be having a word
with her and trying to dissuade her from making a
mistake that could end up with a load of frozen baby
Also, has anyone heard the first lawnmower of spring yet?
(Readers from northern, temperate climes only need reply).
