Without, were heard the sounds that told of the happy waking of the countryside, the blades of grass sighed out content, the damp leaves dried themselves in the warmth, the birds pruned their feathers and took a first flit round.
Снаружи доносился веселый шум просыпающихся полей: привольно вздыхали травы, обогревались на солнышке листья, приглаживали свои перышки и вспархивали птицы.

On this night, the forces of the spirit world, the wild things that haunted the Nevernever, drawn to death and decay, would flit freely back and forth.
В эту ночь силы мира духов, дикие твари, что охотятся в Небывальщине, неся смерть и разложение, вольны перемещаться туда и обратно по своему хотению.

Among low bushes and in clearings there are often little grey birds which constantly flit from tree to tree, and which whistle as they dart away.
В низких кустах, «в мелочах», и на осечках часто держатся маленькие серые птички, которые то и дело перемещаются с деревца на деревцо и посвистывают, внезапно ныряя на лету.
