A brilliant experience at Loch Garten. Recommend if you haven’t been.

Coal-tit at Loch Garten

An outstretched hand

peanut offering


like fast turning pages.

Looking for the place


It lands

Dare not breathe

Do not move

As tickling claws

Cling to your finger

glimpse that tiny

delicate, bird

Shiny black head

pale coffee breast

Before he

grabs his reward

and darts away.
