Most early mornings there are gatherings of various birds. Maybe they are warming in any early sunshine. Probably working out the best route to take to find easy food.
The Rooks usually choose one of the highest houses nearby to sit and ponder the day's possibilities. Here there are Rooks and the occasional Woodpigeon.
Most of the Woodpigeons prefer a safer, more sheltered observatory.
The earliest arrivals are the Blackbirds which gather on my lawn just as it starts to get light and soon start bickering over the seed which is scattered from the feeders.
I think I can say that this morning was the first time I have heard a proper dawn chorus this year. Although I have often heard Robins, this time I could hear about four different species welcoming the Sunrise.
