At 21:00 yesterday I was standing on the front porch just taking in the cooling air when I happened to look up at the overcast which was reflecting a good amount of light and glimpsed a flurry of movement on the underside of a cloud and heard delicate, silvery sounds reminiscent of those made by certain little birds. My attempt to render the sound would be pssit pssiit. Probably of no help, but anyway the combination of sound and movement evoked Silvereyes on the move. Doubtless impossible to confirm but suggestions would be welcome.
