Out for a paddle


This is one of my favourite birds out for a paddle. A favourite firstly for its haunting call and secondly because of that ridiculous bill, which makes me smile every time I see it.

      They are. I always associate them with wild places, at least in the UK they are.

      Indeed. I can listen to that call and escape to wild and natural places in my head, wherever I happen to be in reality.

        Ditto. It sends goose bumps down my back when I listen to its call with my eyes closed.
