The Starling (Sturnus vulgaris) is a bird that is often overlooked as it chatters away on TV aerials and rooftops. I thought they would be common as muck right? Turns out I was wrong. The Starling is currently on the 'Red List' in the UK, which means that their numbers are a cause of concern. [...]
Poetry Mondays; Life Can Be The Sunshine by Erin Hanson
https://videopress.com/v/Yc4m2hes?autoPlay=true&controls=false&loop=true Life can be the Sunshine. Life can be the sunshine, On peaceful days with bright blue skies, Or life can be the raindrops, That fall like tears squeezed from you eyes, Life can be the heaven, That you'll only reach through hell, Since you won't know that you're happy, If you've not been sad [...]
In case you haven't heard - the clocks have gone forward 1 hour. That means lighter days ahead (literally and hopefully figuratively). To me, this is fabulous news. Longer evenings make me feel like I can be more productive - I will be less likely to want to curl up and call it a day [...]
I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud by William Wordsworth.
One of the most famous poems of Spring from the gorgeous Lake District. Image from Canva. I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud. I wandered lonely as a cloud That floats on high o'er vales and hills, When all at once I saw a crowd, A host, of golden daffodils; Beside the lake, [...]

Poetry Mondays – To Daffodils by Robert Herrick
To Daffodils Fair daffodils, we weep to see You haste away so soon; As yet the early-rising sun Has not attain’d his noon. Stay, stay, Until the hasting day Has run But to the evensong; And, having prayed together, we Will go with you along. We have short time to stay, as [...]

Poetry Mondays – On a Lane In Spring by John Clare
On a Lane in Spring. A Little Lane, the brook runs close besideAnd spangles in the sunshine while the fish glide swiftly byAnd hedges leafing with the green spring tideFrom out their greenery the old birds flyAnd chirp and whistle in the morning sunThe pilewort glitters ‘neath the pale blue skyThe little robin has [...]
