People often moan about April because it is a rainy month! If we didn't have the "April showers" those "May flowers" wouldn't "spring" up!!
The birds are getting noisier now! You might even get woken up earlier by the
Wood Pigeon cooing loudly outside the window!! I know I am!!
Other smaller birds then join in...this is called the dawn chorus. See if you can lie in bed and listen to this in the morning.
Look out for Swallows, Swifts and House Martins, as they are on their way back to Britain after the winter.
The Cuckoo returns from Africa in April. We are learning about Africa as part of our "See How They Grow" topic .
