The wren, the wren the king of all birds
St. Stephen's Day he was caught in the furze
Up with the kettle down with the pan
Give us a penny to bury the wren.
- Sighting a cormorant or a curlew at sea is considered bad luck
- Sighting a swallow, robin, or dove is considered good luck
- If a robin flies over a woman on St. Valentine’s Day, she will marry a sailor.
- Three seagulls flying together, directly overhead, signify impending doom.
