Late-singing chiffchaffs

Tuesday’s episode of The Archers was quite earthy, with Roy Tucker being ‘caught short’ and his daughter Phoebe having to do a pregnancy test.  

Listeners may have been so taken up with all this that they failed to notice a chiffchaff singing in the background when Clarry Grundy, Susan Carter and Roy were chatting outside the Dairy.

If Jim Lloyd or Robert Snell had been around they might have observed that 15 August was pretty late in the year for a chiffchaff to sing.
