Young Thrush

ayoungthrushOn the plot of land which I have always thought of as the plantation, and where I saw and photographed deer earlier in the year, big machines have been digging up the ground, so that there are wide paths of raw earth, which break into the sense of secrecy of the place -the water board have been working on flood relief for the park up above the plantation. Anyway, in spite of the deer having taken flight, some birds seem to enjoy the newly turned earth.  I saw two bullfinches in a tree alongside the turned earth the other day – bullfinches are my favourite birds, known in folk-lore as “fairy birds” – and yesterday there was this young thrush exploring the territory, not very well in focus, as I was a bit far off, but I liked his stance; also like to see song-thrushes about in the late Spring.
