My alarm clock, originally uploaded by foxypar4.

Here’s what the photographer had to say:

This is my alarm clock. The tree, about 20 yards from my bedroom window, is a popular roost for anything up to a dozen starlings every dawn and dusk. Not a problem until mid summer when, in the Highlands of Scotland, dusk is about 11pm and dawn only a few hours later at about 3am!

There is one particularly annoying bird that does an incredible imitation of a telephone ringing!

I've had a passion for everything British my entire life, despite being raised as a small-town girl in the American Midwest, After years of dreaming, I got the chance to live and work in England for an entire year. Now I write about my favorite country, and hopefully inspire my fellow Britophiles to get over there and experience it for themselves.
