Someone once told me that when rooks build high, it means it's going to be a good summer. Has anyone else heard this? As far as I'm concerned, they always build high. Higher than I would go, anyway.
Hello VictoriaI've never made a study of rookeries but I'd say, not only do they always build high, they always build in the same place, which, I would say, is a good thing - because it means every summer is a good one.Lucy
I'm grateful to Simon Baddeley at Democracy Street - http://democracystreet.blogspot.com/for emailing to explain the tradition is - that good weather is forecast when rooks fly high and that bad weather is forecast when rooks return early. So the 'prediction' is more about immediate weather than the season to come.Lucy
