As the snow has had an interesting effect on our reserve wildlife here at RSPB Lakenheath Fen, I thought I would dedicate the rest of this article to this.

I did the pantomime which got me singing in front of an audience as part of the chorus. I am now doing a well-known musical with the same company and this time, I have to sing solo! If you are wondering why this is relevant, the rest of this article is about bird song (which is a lot more melodic than my singing!).
