Just as the sighting of the first cuckoo signals the arrival of spring in the UK, does the first cicada noise indicate the arrival of summer in Crete?

I heard one this evening for the first time this year.

Just wondered if there was any Cretan folklore on this subject.

The sound of the cicada cretensis

This site is anyway remarkable if you want to hear an animal's sound.

True is that adage: "He who yields to rule by wooden heads, becomes himself a fool."
