Something's Going On In The Land Of Birds

Something is going on in the land of birds. The Gooses from the Lake have flown over three times this morning already, back and forth they've been going on making a tremendous racket that even disturbed one of the daddies.

Now the birds do like to have a good old chat first thing in the morning that is nothing new, however this is different, this isn't their morning chorus.

I went outside to see if I could get a better idea as they were all at it, the blackbirds and the wood pigeons, where being particularly vocal.

I even caught the sparrow sisters at it and they are usually so very quiet, going about their own business not really interacting much with the others. It looked like a bird council.

As soon as I went outside as if by magic a hush fell everywhere. I'm not sure what it is but I'm going to get to the bottom of it, I don't like how it smells.
