Eight choughs standing on the fence in a row –
red in beak and red in toe,
zoom the camera those three to better see –
they’ve turned this way – to pose, or look at me?
a walker stops to speak – away three fly,
soon all wave their wings and take to the sky.
Chuffed to see, and chuffed to glean
such photographs of eight choughs seen.
