Blog Post No 119.
Now it’s back to the ‘ day job ‘. Rose, my wife is an enthusiastic Bird Watcher and has found for me in the R S P B handbook of British Birds those which ‘nest ‘ on Bempton Cliffs. So :- As the verses I wrote in Blog No 113 the first two verses following were written between midnight and one o’ clock this morning, but now I can’t remember the start of verse three which came to me shortly after and I did not write down ! ! !
From far and wide they come
A glimpse to catch
Of those many aerial flights
The one that all their interests match
Holding binoculars here to watch
Those that nest upon these heights.
Bird watchers many stay
For hours to spot that very one
They hope will turn up
And hopefully may
Feed their offspring while the sun
Shines upon their perfect day.
Here are those far ranging Aerial Wanderers
Those cliffs that rise
Gannet, Fulmar, Kittiwake
On effortless glide
With Guillemot, Puffin and Razorbill
To rest, nest and multiply.
