No Need For Alarm

At about 6:30am we are woken by an alarm. Nothing unusual other than the fact that this alarm is not inside but outside the house. A unusual combination of cat and birdeach day.

The white browed robin chat singing it’s heart out at the very top of its volume – intricate tweets and warbles. Below this literally our cat Peper approaches the bedroom window , bell jingling, claws scratching at the mesh, plaintive mews calling to come in after a night on the tiles.
