During Lockdown I took to feeding the birds on our balcony. It is fun identifying all the individual characters of the birds that come to lunch. One regular is a local wood pigeon who lives in a tree opposite and coos a lot when the table is empty. But today, he has told me off for staying indoors!
‘Come outside, the sun is shining,’ cooed the local wood pigeon
I’ve not seen you inside like this so much before;
Why are you doing it?
What’s it for?
The sun is shining outside, right now!
How can you stay enclosed, shut in?
I can’t stop for long
I’m building a nest.
But, I’ll be back soon
Well… I’ll do my best
Then he flew offLesley Scoble (just quoting the bird’s words)
‘Coo!’ I replied, ‘I think I will!’
The Wildlife Trusts 30 Days Wild Challenge
It’s June! The month to go a little bit wild! The Wildlife Trusts annual 30 Days Wild Challenge is to do one random act of wildness each day through the month of June. So, I’ll have a go at being wild!
I reckon talking to Wood Pigeons is just a little bit wild!—don’t you?
Get outside and go WILD!
