The Blackbird In The Garden

Posted Tuesday 15th September 2009 at 03:00 by Francis Duggan
The blackbird in the garden I know him by his song
His voice is unmistakeable one cannot get him wrong
His kind I knew many years ago when I was a young boy
In a wood that is far north of here even as the crow does fly.

The blackbird in the garden is one I often see
Sometimes he is quite silent perched on a bush or tree
And sometimes by the hedgerow he scatters leaves around
In his search for slugs and worms that are hiding in the ground....

Yellow Billed Spoonbill

Posted Tuesday 15th September 2009 at 02:57 by Francis Duggan
By the lake shore in the shallows where the waters are still
He walks in water to his knees the white bird with yellow legs and long yellow spoon like bill
With his bill in the water as he walk moving from side to side
His prey water insects, crustaceans and tiny fish in the water weed hide.

He and his partner build their nest on a high branch of a tree
On her nest of sticks she lays four white eggs though sometimes two or three
They both take care...

On The Last Time I Saw Caherbarnagh

Posted Tuesday 15th September 2009 at 02:53 by Francis Duggan
On the last time I saw Caherbarnagh the weather was windy and cold
In the early days of December and the old year was getting quite old
Dark clouds hung above Gortavehy it looked like more rain on the way
And frost overnight on the high ground had left the old fields looking gray.

The last time I saw Caherbarnagh it was a cold wintery day
And in the galvanize shed in the farmyard the cattle were bellowing for hay
The stream from the foot of the mountain...

Joseph's Blog of Birding: The Bash Report, Part I

As a special birding weekend passes, two hopefully special blog entries follow it. This weekend, as any reader of this blog will know, it was the Scottish Birdforum Bash. As far as I am aware, I will be the only person that will blog the occasion. As there is a limit to how much I can post in a blog entry, there will be two blog entries, this one charting the first day and the next charting the second. Most of you that will probably read this (although not all) will know what was seen by either...
