Celestial blue

Limpid air filled by bird song

Urgent work called for


n.b. On these sunny days there is much to do in preparation for winter months. Those who need to move on before winter gather their strength for travel; those who are to remain scavenge, store, repair while the weather and light is good. Pigeons keep singing their dull tune and do what pigeons do.

Crows and their cousins seem to be engaged in business like trips to various important places. Their purposeful flight-paths are criss-crossing the land as they commute, sometimes in pairs, to their appointed destinations. They will reconvene at the rookery at dusk.
