- Bird Lore
When there are signs of bad weather the seagulls and the wild geese come in land and scream.
The swallow, the curlews and many other birds fly very low over the land.
It is said that the Robin when our Lord suffered from the crown of thorns on this head, tried to pick them out and while doing so its breast brushed against the blood and that is how it is said that Robin got its red breast.
