Today the birds came.
It was quite early this morning, they landed in a tree in the garden of the house a couple of doors down from my little garden.
A few stragglers were perching on the telephone wires as I was stood washing up and looking out of the kitchen window. I grabbed the camera, put on my wellies and went and stood on the old wooden table on the patio, in my pyjamas.
The noise was quite someting
I think they are starlings
but I'm not sure?
they began to leave
a few at a time
and then all of them
except for two
I jumped off the table and out the back gate
they flew right over my head and away, I could hear the sound of the wind rushing through their wings,
it took my breath away and I laughed out loud, it was so amazing
and then they were gone
and that was the day the birds came
