    Song birds have regional accents just like human beings, according to new research.
     
    Scientists say there is a noticeable difference in pitch between town and country bird-song.
     
    They think bird song in the city is at a higher pitch, to help reduce echoes bouncing off nearby buildings.
     
    Bill Turnbull and Sian Williams report.
