Today I have heard the first calls of that winter hibernator, the lawn mower. A sunny April Sunday brought the ‘dulcet tones’ drifting over the fence from a neighboring garden. The call was quickly answered by others, they are clearly sociable creatures as the first song always receives a quick reply. Its distant cousin the strimmer was heard later that day, attracted by the winter growth left untamed by the lawnmowers. There have been no sightings in my garden. I think we will be waiting another week before either put in an appearance.
