Home to roost


I know not everyone takes pleasure in having a rookery next to their home, but I enjoy our neighbours most of the time, and often stop to watch them when I'm shutting up the chickens for the night. This is only a very small part of the flock that musters in waves in the pine trees before they all finally set off to spend the night in the woods below us. I do dissuade them from eating at the bird table, though, as they frighten away the smaller birds.

Thank you, Margaret, it rather surprised me! I'm not a good photographer, so I always feel rather pleased when they're not a smudgy mess. And we don't get many dramatic sunsets here.
