Unfortunately I'm not a good enough wildlife photographer to have managed any photos of these wonderful, elusive little birds but this, at least, is the wood overlooking the Brede Valley near Winchelsea where they can nearly always be seen.

Long-Tailed Tits

Sudden sunlight

tiny sounds that barely brush the silence

flitting silhouettes on webs of twigs

with pencil tails


then gone

in bouncing, chirping squadrons grouped

on glowing clouds, haze before the sun,

a crow

calling on a cold

February day
