Watching that sky lark as it climbed higher and higher up into the blue above, and listening to it's glorious song, I remembered, with wonderful anticipation, that the BBC are starting a new, year-long, series on Radio 4 next Monday morning. David Attenborough will be the first presenter to spend two minutes a day introducing us to the enormous range of British bird song and their calls. What an inspirational idea! I was trying to decide, if it was me, which bird I would choose to start the series. My guess is they may go with a nightingale, or maybe the cuckoo. My choice would probably be my favourite bird which is the blackbird but we don't have long to wait to find out!
I have set my alarm already for 05.56 which gives me two minutes to mentally surface before the Tweet of the Day starts at 05.58 on Bank Holiday Monday morning. I can't think of a better way to start the day!
