yard, human, hawk
The whole picture.
In Grosvenor Precinct a young man with a brief case under his arm hovers near me as I pass. He wears a tee-shirt emblazoned with the words "Save the human". Further on there is another young man with a tee shirt bearing the same slogan. Suspecting a cult I move on quickly but it seems that there is between us a mutual absence of interest.
In the pub, Geoff says, eyeing my camera: "There was a hawk over here, yesterday lunch time."Last year there were several citing of a hawk over "the village", which is what we call the area of Tunbridge Wells adjoining the Grove. Once I saw a hawk near here carrying a smaller bird in its talons. I shall be on the look out for hawks now. I would like get a shot of one on patrol overhead.
