When there is going to be snow or rain or hard weather, the little robin comes to the cottage door to beg a crumb of bread.
You will see wild geese flying through the air and you will see clusters of stares and crows flying up and down in the fields.
The sheep and cows, horse and all the other animals will make for the ditches. and houses.
