In last few days i have been ploughing, as the morning mist lifted.... milly and i watched as a few terns and gulls circled aboves us then dozens appeared from nowhere swooping down and landing behind the plough..i said under my breath ...Lord you have fed the birds this morning! There was a beautiful sky as we brought the straw in you just had to stop and look and look and look and feel so small!..
