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!
