Short, Sweet and Late

Tuning in to North Downs & Beyond yesterday evening I found a reference to my birdy indolence of late. Suitably chastened, I awoke early, de-iced the windscreen and hurried to the patch, hoping that a Wheatear might have crossed the freezing Channel in order to pose for me. I found four - none in posing mood....

A 'wee, sleekit, cow'rin, tim'rous beastie'
Freshly arrived, and bound for somewhere well north of here I'll bet...
Shingle, Sea Kale, fishing rod, distant cliffs. Context is everything.
Better late than never I guess.

Sorry about the ropey quality, and for blog neglect. Life is to blame...
