Wagtail Dance

A cool breeze swept in from the east, rippling the skin of the trout pools , ruffling the hair of riverside willows. Deep down the valley a lone Oystercatcher piped his melancholy salute before following his bright orange beak skywards. Behind this lifescape was layered the drift of a distant Cuckoo, announcing his arrival and sounding a warning to the moor edge Meadow Pipits.
