Pretentious, moi? Not really, I hope. It did occur to me that "bird of the day" might be open to misinterpretation. (Sorry if you are reading this because you found this phrase, and are now disappointed!).
Today, two robins, on a fence either side of the path in the park. One sat within feet of me and sang, for a little bit. I told it my news, as my father always does when robins come to watch him gardening. Is that a Norfolk habit, I wonder?
Also, two very soggy pigeons sitting in a puddle, and what seem to be the usual wrens and thrushes.
