Abstract

THIS morning, Thursday, is clear and frosty, but until now we have had constant rain. In spite of this the birds, for three or four days, have been singing as in early spring. The rooks have been visiting their old nests in the elms, and, our gardener assures me positively, have been carrying sticks and repairing their nests; this he has seen himself, and marked as exceptional. I suspect that this (unusual?) conduct and song herald a period of fine dry weather.
