Stevenson mentions having two pairs in his garden at Norwich and says: 'The nightingale is by no means a shy bird, at least not when it first arrives, but sings fearlessly throughout the day in the most exposed situations.'
There are many traditional stories concerning the bird, but all revolve around a theme which is that the bird sings with its breast pressed upon a sharp thorn, in order to stay awake.
The reason for this is that it is alleged that the nightingale originally only had one eye and that it stole the legendary single eye of the slow worm, since which time the vengeful slow worm has been searching for the bird in order to get back its eye.
