Our bird watching group is a close feathered flock of like minded individuals. Under ‘normal’ circumstances we meet regularly to plan visits to rewarding sites… inland and coastal. We also look at floral residents and insects. Particularly butterflies. We have built up our modest expertise over a number of years now. We share photos and bird experiences and provided talks on a voluntary basis and our coordinator occasionally writes a poem. eg.

Green Woodpecker

Camouflaged by constant where am I charades bird
I laugh and cackle to mislead you bird.
You've passed me missed me bird
I've just landed to your left obscured by leaves can't see me bird
. I'm ahead now, way out of your sight bird.
No, left. Left! I've left you right behind bird.
Here and gone, there and ploy bird.
Heard me, Didn’t see me.
Wrong tree! Wrong tree!
