On the roof, long legg'd
A strange feathered weather vane
Cranes round: points to ponds

Sixteen seagulls

Sixteen svelte seagulls
Lawn dancing. A fine supper
In feather ball gowns

Sixteen shrill seagulls
Squabbling over spilt chips
Take-away tourists

Rooks at Solstice Park

Hands in pockets, sharp!
Sauntering past for chip scraps
Black suit bold as brass

Ragged as the wind
And just as wild. Squall feathered
Car park scavengers

Cheeky chip-napper!
Droll streetwise vagabonds dip
Free to take away

Starlings in October

Over Brands Hatch

Fleeting forms billow
Abstracts on a big blue sky
Murmuration art

Garden Tree

Quick! The tree, safe now!
Six speckled sisters chatter
Starling fledglings fly

Robin Redbreast

Wrapped in warm twilight
The dusk as red as your breast
Lay bare your heart's song

Lawn strutting starling
Freshly slick'd in gold and green
Garden party guest
