Sky Lark or Nightingale?

Sky Lark?

Sky Lark?

Actually neither!

As you can see from the jaunty tail –

Nightingale?

Nightingale?

It is my old nemesis, the Olive Thrush; Larking about in the Sky at Night!

He is the first to sing in the pitch black long before dawn. and the last to sing as the shadows lengthen and night falls. He makes the most of the day – and night!

This is about the only time he is quiet: when he has his mouth stuffed full of food!

Singing, “I’m too cheeky for this post!”
