"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.
Jackdaw
Robin
Magpie
Anyway I started a new painting today and have a fair bit to get through this week.
