"Jenny Wren"

Early morning I was stood with Jac at my viewing point overlooking the valley. The sun was up and mist was lifting off Merlin's Hill. A cloud of midges were drifting over the gorse. I was listening to the thrush on the electric wire when I spied "Jenny Wren" in the hedge in front of us. She was flitting around in the hedge and was soon joined by her mate.

I medieval times personal names were given to birds and this is when Jenny was given her name.
There  are more still in use if you think about it eg.
Anyway I started a new painting today and have a fair bit to get through this week.
