Spring is definitely on its way (in my garden anyhow!)

The garden was lively this morning. Romance is in the air!
My 20 minutes at dawn produced: 1 Blackcap (F), 4 Blackbirds, 4 Carrion Crows, 3 H Gulls, 2 Gt Tits, 1 Blue Tit, 1 Bullfinch (M), 1 Robin, 2 Chaffinches, 4 H Sparrows, 5 Starlings, 4 Long T Tits, 2 W Pigeons and a Songthrush singing high up in the trees.
At lunchtime I watched the H Sparrows collecting and building nests up in the roof of the house next door. They are feeling the romance!

Dawn breaks, the earth is alive,
Birds singing in the skies.
A blanket of dew drops glistens in the morning sun.
The sea is calm, the day has won.

The soaring Buzzard dominates the sky,
For his feast, his prey will surely die,
Tis not for us to reason why,
Who made this earth to breed... and die.
