Wow, you were so lucky to see those waxwings. I tried for them today, but alas, not a bird in sight. Ah well, there's still one month or so to find one...

Hard luck Ben - I've seen them each morning in the gloom this week, but they seem to commute between B&Q and the industrial estate.
Better luck next time!

Headlong joy is ever on the wing
In wintry solstice like the shorten'd light
Soon swallow'd up in dark and long outliving night.

You left this on my blog..it is so beautiful..thank you...

RW, your John Milton quote (just one of your many excellent snippets) stimulated me to find that one - now I intend to read Paradise Lost at last.
Incidentally, my daughter went to the same college as Milton, where there remains a large Mulbery tree under which he sat while writing.
