The first thing I saw stepping out of the front door was a female blackbird posing on a fence post catching the early rays.
Their singing was loud in the still air and carried even further from the tops of poles and trees.
A buzzard was even higher, not for singing but for surveillance.
It saw me coming and made for a tree top a little further away from the road.
Other birds enjoying the early morning sun included a Robin
and a Corn Bunting

Then the rain came in producing rainbows. At first they were little bits of rainbows
Then full arcs, unfortunately I only had my telephoto lens so could not get the full picture. The colours in the morning light were as intense as I have ever seen.
