Where’s the Osprey?

Here’s a photo of an Osprey in flight. It’s small and not easy to see – but this snap was taken from some distance away – by me this year. It’s also carrying a fish – even less easy to see but this bird is flying to a perch branch on the tree in the foreground to feast on its catch. The beauty of this magnificent bird flying takes your breath away and reminds us how precious our native wildlife is. David Cameron is seemingly more concerned with protecting his own backside from the lashing of the xenophobic euro-haters in his party than protecting the interests of wildlife. His buddy Chancellor George Osborne has opened the door to the further rape of the English countryside in the name of economic development. See the Guardian report here.

It’s disgusting and disgraceful.

The RSPB is taking this challenge seriously, as they should.

It’s time to make a stand methinks.

Left with the use of my left arm/hand only, after a serious motor cycle accident in 2005, I am learning to adapt to life with a brachial plexus injury and have developed a style of playing guitar using open tunings. I love drawing, painting and generally messing around in a fairly loose fashion. Can't describe myself as an artist, but perhaps a doodler with intent.
