Sheep and herds fighting for their food more than usual indicate storm.

TWEED 025

For anglers in spring it is always unlucky to see single magpies ; but two may always be regarded as a favourable omen. And the reason is, that in cold and stormy weather one magpie alone leaves the nest in  search of food, the other remaining sitting with the eggs or the young ones ; but when two go out together, it is only when the weather be mild and warm, and favourable for fishing.
