On Hearing Goldfinches

Posted Saturday 26th September 2009 at 02:22 by Francis Duggan
The goldfinches in small flocks they twitter and sing
And the fancy in me it somehow takes to wing
And I find myself back in the field by the hill
On a bright Summer's day by the clear mountain rill.

That to the big river babbles as it does flow
And goldfinches are singing on the hedgerow
And the cuckoo is calling in the wood nearby
And the swallows above me they chirp as they fly.

At the foot of the hill overlooking the town...

It Has Been Awhile Now

Posted Saturday 26th September 2009 at 02:18 by Francis Duggan
It has been awhile now some two decades ago
Since I heard the dunnock sing in the hedgerow
Some things from the past with us do seem to stay
And I fancy I can hear him singing today.

The little brown dunnock with the thin slender bill
He sang in the hedge by the babbling rill
That flow to the river that to the sea flow
Though hidden in foilage his song I did know.

It has been awhile now since I heard the corncrake

In fancy he walks in the old fields again
And he hears the birds sing in the wind and the rain
And he hears the lark carolling at dawn of the day
The old hill from him doesn't seem far away
Why should he feel homesick when he can visualize
And he can hear the robin sing at sunset and sunrise
And the cuckoo he calls in the wooodland nearby
And the swallows o'er the moorland they chirp as they fly
And though he often talks of the hills far away...

By Mushera Hill

By Mushera hill six miles from Millstreet Town
I worked in all weather cutting tall pine trees down
For to earn a living an easier way
Than working in a wood on a cold Winter's day.

But Spring it was nice by the old bracken hill
With the wildflowers in bloom by the clear babbling rill
And nesting birds sung in the wood and hedgerow
On looking back how fast two decades did go.

The red squirrels they were so lovely to see

Fairburn Ings

Posted Friday 25th September 2009 at 11:52 by birdbrainer
[b]I work part time as a primary school teacher so I have some spare time Lucky me! I visited Fairburn Ings to see the Long Eared Owls that are there every year and found out that they needed volunteers. I thought what better way to get involved and learn along the way? So I met with the visitor centre manager and have worked every Monday morning there for about 6 months. I love it it is so relaxing (most of the time), apart from bank holidays and when the coffee machine starts kicking off!!...
