January 2017

Birdsong everywhere now….Imbolc just around the corner…

A blackbird tunes up.
Two rooks heckle from the wings.
Avian envy.



The birds are getting started with their 2017 dawn chorus…

All over the woods,
songbirds are practising scales,
trying out Spring riffs.



The woods are lovely, dark and deep…

Mid-Winter silence
universally observed
– except by that jay.



A gentle start to the new year…

Quiet are the woods,
leaf-litter deadens foot steps.
A puff ball explodes.
