Strange noise in the night.
I woke up early this morning at around 3 o'clock, I know it was this time because the local town bell struck three. After trying to get back to sleep I could not help but hearing this very odd sound, like the sound coming from a propeller type aircraft in the distance but there was no change in pitch as you expect from a flying aircraft, it was a just a constant unchanging sound. Its a sound which sounds familiar but at the same time I have never heard it before.
With that sound there was the sound of chirping birds(not unheard of at that time of night) but also allot of noise coming from a rookery less than a mile away where the crows where making one hell of racket for some reason. The noise continued for about 15min stopped for about a few minutes and continued until I fell asleep.
Oddly when I was looking for an explanation this morning on Google, for some reason I was compelled to type in "the hum".
This phenomena seems to be happening in other parts of this country and in other parts of the world.
There was even an article about it posted yeasterday on independent.co.uk which is another strange coincidence if you ask me.
