The Sign of Summer

The robin is a welcome sight at any time of year. But the sight of his red breast is no signal that summer is about to arrive. That will be signalled by the appearance of a different type of breast. The robin is simply not one of the tits we’re all waiting to see. Nonetheless, Arne Nature Reserve turned out to be a very pleasant way to spend a Sunday afternoon. We will go back when the weather has warmed up a little.

  1. When I lived just outside of Oxford, the apartment building was heated so much, I kept the window to the library open. One spring, a robin took up residence in my book case. It did not seem to bother her that she was sharing a condiminum with what was a non-reader until her young fledged. Thanks for pulling out that memory.
