When the rooks build their nests in the top of the trees it is the sign of a fine summer,but when they build their nests low in the trees it is the sign of a bad summer.

When the sea-gulls come inland it is the sign of a storm.
When the swallows fly low it is a sign of bad weather, and when they fly high it is a sign of good weather.
