Dawn's early light

      It's our old friend dawn again and she's being a bit of a tease today, this time she's wearing a flimsy little strand or two of mist, and very attractive she looks too.
      The weather for the last few weeks has been hot and humid, apart from the odd thunderstorm, and this definitely makes very early morning the best part of the day, pleasantly cool and refreshing and an excellent way to enjoy the first cup of tea.
      Even the bird, our local sparrowhawk we think, is getting a little brisk early morning exercise under his belt to work up an appetite for breakfast.
      So there's a storm warning for the small birds if not for us.
