A Lazy Man’s Birding

“During [these] periods of relaxation after concentrated intellectual activity, the intuitive mind seems to take over and can produce the sudden clarifying insights which give so much joy and delight”. Fritjof Capra

Garden cuties – Long-tailed Tit

Just every now and again it is good to have a lazy, sunny morning. A day of not doing a lot and giving yourself time to reflect, relax and enjoy the simple things in life. Legs outstretched, arms supported and looking out over the back garden, my morning cuppa in hand and watching birds making their staged approach to the garden pond. Beauties like these seem to share the relaxed and easy moment.

It is of course one of the great and good reasons for being interested, fascinated and drawn to birds. They are my medicine, the motivation to sit and relax whilst immersing myself in our natural world. It is a cure for all the clutter we accumulate in our daily lives and it takes us away from our troubles, real or imagined.
