My husband always says that when the cat cleans behind its ears - its going to rain ????
Before all the 1000s of earthquakes that we have had over the last 18 months - the two million birds that live in the trees around us - go quiet. Its really spooky.
On my daughters dairy farm, the cows all sat down on their way into the dairy shed (4.30am), minutes before the big quake.
maybe animals are attuned to the earth vibrations, noise ?
