Wednesday brings shepherd's warning and robin song
Thrush
Jackdaw
Still cool morning 
 
A rookery wakes
Silage scents
Alarmed wren
I feel the life in the earth beneath me 
 
Field fares rush on ahead
Robin scold
Blackbird
Blackbird 
Flash of white rump in hedgerow 
Rabbits on bank bolt for warren 
 
A thrush sings the morning
 
Grey pigeon against gentle grey sky
Great-tits and titmice
Heard not seen
Hidden treasure 
Revealed with patience
 
Children’s voices float up from village school
Woolly hats and rucksacks
The sky lightens
Cattle clump around feeder
Windows blink to life
Christmas lights
