The past days have been eventful, full of storms and sunny spells.
The process moves quickly, thoughts and threads changing and shifting as quickly as this weather.
I am now resident in the New Victoria Allotments – thank you Fiona and the whole community! I can’t wait to get to know all the folk and the life they facilitate on their allotments.
I continue on my daily walks.
I feel as if I am becoming grounded in this place.
I find a hatched bird egg on the westerly end of the drive.
Someone tells me a Sparrowhawk has been seen in the allotments.
This evening I am overwhelmed by the number of house sparrows, all dancing about. Since the seventies these birds have suffered a 60 per cent decline in urban areas. While I watch them I try to be invisible, but I don’t need to-they are unabashed by my small human presence, a visitor in their land.
The birds draw much of my attention, much of the time.
Tomorrow we can expect more rain so I will be getting well togged up.
