Songbirds on the starboard bow

I saw a lot of larks on my morning walk today, and it struck me that normally you don't see larks much - you only hear them, singing high overhead.   But these larks seemed to have lost their cloaking devices, and were quite obvious, flying straight up while singing a song that sounded very much like the noise that 'Space Invaders' use to make.   dit dit dit pwee! pwee! dit dit dit dit, zoing zoing zoing -  PWEE PWEE PWEE!!!

I also heard the cuckoo calling.  A LOT.  No wonder cuckoos have to outsource their chickcare arrangements, they have no time for anything but CUCKOO!
