On a Tree by a River

On a tree by a river a little tom-tit
Sang “Willow, tit willow, tit willow”
And I said to him, “Dicky-bird, why do you sit
Singing ‘Willow, tit willow, tit willow’”
“Is it weakness of intellect, birdie?” I cried
“Or a rather tough worm in your little inside”
With a shake of his poor little head, he replied “Oh, willow, tit willow, tit willow!”

With funding from Severn Trent’s Boost for Biodiversity Fund, Tame Valley Wetlands are carrying out an exciting project, ‘On a Tree by a River’, aiming to bring back from the brink the willow tit, one of the most threatened native birds in the UK into one of its last strongholds in the West Midlands, and to give local people a stake in its future now and for generations to come.
