Bird Watching

There’s something mesmerising about watching a bird flying. Imagine the freedom of soaring high above the world. Catching the currents of air and gliding.

Up and over, hard left. There! In the forest, there’s food. Easy pickings.

Wings in. Dive. Swerve. Dive. Level off. Feet out. Land. Red chest puffs out.

There are others here. Left, the chaffinch has claimed the stump.

Right, the coal tit is guarding the suet ball.

Clatter. Up. The squirrel munches on nuts from the human container.

Click. Humans.

Through the lens of a camera, humans view these birds from a hide. They’re not hidden from the birds, but they are far enough away that the birds don’t get disturbed.
