cogs and wheels spinning
birdsong, silence of kestrel
not thinking for now


n.b. Thank you SO for planning the route this morning. I put my gears into motion, put my mind into neutral. Phew!

Prunella modularis


Modest hedgerow shuffler

Sweet fluttering notes


n.b. The dunnock, also known as the hedge sparrow, is a rather dull creature until it opens its throat to sing. Better that way round I think. The RSPB website has a clip of the song. For me the song is the most beautiful morning wake up call, for which I am most grateful.
