What's that smell?

It's all been depressiungly quiet the last few days. On Friday I cycled about 25km around Maridalen which resulted in a very sore rear end and very few birds although a Buzzard was nice and did not appear to be a migrating bird. Maybe they will breed here this year?
Today a walk through Oslo city revealed a Stock Dove in the park around the royal palace and the first Wood Anenomes are now in flower. The sun is still shining but there are still frosts at night so spring has not really sprung yet.
Last night we after the wife questioned whether I had coughed in my pants we realised that there was a strong smell of sulphur in the air from the Icelandic volcano - I wonder whether the fallout from the volcano is affecting birds in the same way that it is affecting aeroplanes or have we humans just become a tad hysterical?
