2.5 Round the Countryside
6—' Summer Again '
W. W. WILLIAMS
A few months ago Watkin Williams took his listeners for an imaginary walk round the countryside, showing them how to find out what some of the animals had been doing by looking out for the evidence or ' sign ' that they left behind them ; he suggested that the understanding of this 'sign' was rather like learning to read the printed words on the page of a book. Today Mr. Williams will again talk about the footprints, traces of fur and feather and so forth, left by animals, with special reference to the type of ' sign ' that may be found in the countryside at this time of year.

A series of talks about the countryside
' Birds that Change their Habits '
Within the memory of middle-aged persons certain birds have changed their habits, among them swallows, martens, wood pigeons, carrion crows, starlings, gulls. An old name for the swallow, for instance, was chimney swallow, but the bird no longer nests in the wide chimneys of olden days but on beams in outhouses and elsewhere. Wood pigeons abound in London parks and carrion crows in the suburbs where they are safe from the gamekeeper ; starlings roost in London, and sea gulls become inland birds in the winter. Have these birds changed their habits in order to conform with the surroundings and conditions of the lives of human beings? Eric Parker will try to answer that question today.
