Election night swing

Stayed up through the night… it was worth it to listen to the dawn chorus at 4am! A sparkly blue sky appeared by half-four and by five I’d had enough of the political banter. A loud noise outside caught my attention – so loud I thought it could have been someone trying to break a fence down. The culprit was a song thrush, merrily swinging snails to smash them against a sheet of corrugated iron. Inspection shows this must be a regular breakfast ceremony and perhaps the noise has been enough to scare away the grass snakes which used to rest and gather body heat under the metal.
