Brian’s Mixtape #15: The Rain and The Wind

Brian’s rather enjoys the rain when he’s wrapped up warm in his nest, but when he’s off foraging for food and records it’s quite another. The wind gets in his eyes and the rain makes his feathers stick together. It’s a sartorial nightmare.

This week his mixtape is all about his ambivalence towards this weather we’re having. Brian suggests you light a roaring fire, grab a cup of steaming tea and sit back and enjoy it.
