Osprey nest at Dyfi junction?

video

My daughter told me to watch out for this,
on the train journey from Aberystwyth, in Wales,
to Neston, on the Wirral.

(The usual apologies for the quality of the pictures.

The nest is on top of the pole.)





















Herring gulls nesting on a garage roof in Aberystwyth.

A Red Kite was seen above the town on Sunday morning.

I am astonished at the seeming influx of magpies, crows
and wood pigeons since I left the U.K. The wood pigeons
seem to be thriving, much bigger than I remember.

My Beautiful Mother

My
mother
was
a
beautiful,
special,
person,
who was
funny,
entertaining,
elegant,
extraordinarily
brave,
very
loving
and
forever
young.

I am
going
to
England
for a while.

On the corner of Hillsborough and Grenville Street

















I sometimes
forget,
especially
when in
St George's,
in the heat
of the day,
on my way
to the
bus stand,
dodging
the traffic
and
the drains






















to stop

and look

and see.

It is my
ignorance
of history,
or former
occupancy,
that shames
my
latent
curiosity.

Caught in the act.


The face
of
the thief
who
sneaked
a bite
of
my lunch,
mistaking
Marmite
for
chocolate
spread.
