Murmurings at Mouline

My first thought was that the nuclear reactor at nearby Chinon had finally
gone on the blink.
My second thought was what, besides the furry ones, my sewing and a corkscrew,
should I take down into the cave to sit it out until the men in bio-hazard suits arrived with
their geiger counters to assess the situation.
And then my final thought was - starlings! 
It's murmuration season once more and the sky behind Chateau Long Dog
was full of them this morning all wheeling and turning
over the fields in the early light.
Magic - carry on squadron leader!
