Even in rural areas there can be a lot of background noise during the day. We are so used to it, that we only notice it when it stops. A bit like the ticking of a clock which goes unnoticed until it stops. During these quiet hours a bird's song would be audible at greater distances.
What time is local sunrise in Leeds/Liverpool this time of year? Here in Portland, Or it's around 7am.
The sun comes out in Portland. It's very nice in the summer.
Can anyone pin down exactly why they sing at dawn usually and not 2:30am?
I visited my girlfriend this weekend in Liverpool and we stayed up quite late. When we were settling down, I noticed the birds were singing at around 2:30am, I'm in Leeds and I can hear them again (it's 2:45). Why is this?
Surely you mean "the early bloke catches the birds".
