I've got news for you, Ladybird - the robins and blackbirds sing from about 2 a.m. currently. I know cos I don't go to bed till at least then, and they're singing their hearts out, quite noisy it is too. Apparently part of their territorial, ready to mate procedure, heartwarming to think its already nearly breeding season. Lord knows when they sleep, they must be exhausted being up most of the night - the robin even feeds from the bird table at 2 a.m., I've seen him do it.

I have a very noisy pheasant in my garden who has recently decided to make lots of noise at around 3 am in the morning.

Perhaps he thinks he is a cockerell ?
