Scottish beasts

Arranzilla

tapping & tugging
at the side of the tent
early morning wind

*

around the headland
from the seal sculpture
this one moves

*

at the Osprey Center
a crowd gathers to watch
squirrels on the feeder

*

no does to herd
the solitary stag haunts
a caravan park

*

blood-red sunset
I raise the midge net
to take a nip

*

with each wingbeat
another yelp
oystercatcher

*

Phil Bennison
Dry Stone Walling
Mole Control

*

out of the water
a black guillemot totters
on its big red feet

*

rock pipit on the beach
meadow pipit on the moor
that same restless tail

*

these hill-walkers
with their lurid greens & yellows!
lizard, tiger beetle

*

on the far hill
white boulders have infiltrated
a herd of sheep
