You might be wondering why I'm posting at 05:30 in the morning. Well I've just been in the garden setting up my sound recorder for a test recording of the "Dawn Chorus".
The Sunday morning nearest Mayday is reckoned to be a good time to hear it, and I'm practising. Because it's Monday today the road traffic is active here in the City of Birmingham UK, but I reckon along with the birdsong it's part of the ambience.
You've got to suffer for your art, but I shall sustain myself with a bacon sandwich and a cup of tea.
