Adorable singing soft RSPB bird toys with authentic birdsong, I saw these in the Natural History Museum shop the other day and the blackbird’s song transported me to age 11 walking home from school, socks drooping, as the winter nights drew in. They are also available online from here for about a fiver. Lovely!
