Quiet skies

Like summer's swifts my words are gone. Soon they'll be back, I hope (sooner than the swifts at least), but for now the skies of my mind are quiet.

I gave my word, though, that here I would record each vertebrate I saw in 2012 and on Friday, the laughter of autumn's pink-feet in my ears, I saw two new birds at Cley.

New on a west wind
