The other day a HERON , today a RED KITE.
It swooped, skimmed the Magnolia, past the Oak, chasing a Crow.
Wing span 6ft, held at a dihedral with a long forked tail, twisting as it changed direction. I was taken over; an invasion of majesty. Down it swooped again, right up to the kitchen window. Orange spread of its tail feathers ..orange cream brown for my mind’s eye.
Enthralled, my conversation with ticket agency ( booking tickets for Justin Butcher’s performance locally of THE DEVIL’S PASSION) got a bit confusing. Credit card number being given interspersed with “Oh! Here it comes again. It’s HUGE” www.redkite.net (Pix copyright Helen Olive)
