Nature’s lesson

On my daily 2km walks over the past few weeks there is something I’ve noticed....bird song. Now I don’t know if there are more birds because there’s less traffic or if it’s just the same as before but I was too preoccupied to notice it.
So the silence was eerily strange today. There wasn’t a tweet to be heard despite the fact that it was a beautiful day.
“What has happened to the birds?”
Now as you well know I have a bird phobia so I don’t particularly want to see any of them but I was worried as to why there was no sign of any of them.
And then I spotted it. Soaring high above, surveying the land below was .... a buzzard.

So now it all made sense. Birds, and I presume many other creatures, realised that there was a potential killer in their environment and so what did they do? Yes, these supposedly less intelligent life forms had enough cop on to scurry home and stay there until the danger had passed over.
Now if they can do it, surely us humans can do it too.
