autumn robinsong -
the leaves a little redder
The robin is one of the few birds that sing at this time of year. Both male and female robins hold territories and both sing all through the winter. In the breeding season, like other birds, it's only the males that really sing thouh both males and females call to keep in touch with other birds around them.
Today the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds are asking people to join in their 'Let Nature Sing' campaign to help them to bring bird song to five million people. They want bird song to be heard everywhere, from workplaces to living rooms, for people to enjoy and to send a message to people in power we want birdsong to always be heard around us.

Pilton Community Health Project always has birdsong playing in its offices, as it relaxes staff and clients. Is your workplace taking part in Let Nature Sing?
If your workplace tales part and plays birdsong in your office then remember, it's even better to get outside at lunchtime and enjoy nature itself!
What's your favourite birdsong?
