that's about the saddest post I've ever read on these forums LB. really. sure birds can be loud and raucous at this time of year - their song might as well simply be "shag, shag, who's up for a shag?" but to say you're rather listen to a burglar alarm?? sheesh... even tongue in cheek you must have thought that thought. I feel sorry for you. I really do. Plodder - possibly Chaffinch or Robin. check the RSPB site.

Been out again today; after training though, and the OP bird was in fact a Great Tit. The bird that goes twee da lee da lee, is a Coal Tit. Never mind LB, they soon shut up as soon as they have established their territories and are nesting. My wife is of the same opinion of morning birdsong, she slams the window shut calling them noisy b.st..ds.

Well done FB, it is a robin, 'Rockin' Robin to be precise, lyric taken from the classic rock 'n roll number by Bobby Day. Recorded around 1958 for those of us old enough to remember.
