Online reading



This snapshot of my Google Reader trends flatters the Telegraph. Those articles are not all read, they're just marked as read, except for Boris Johnson's. I only subscribe for his column and the rest come along with it.

King of the birds



I see wrens from time to time and the other day I saw four (this is one of them) at the same time in a dead tree by the window of my writing shed. The king of the birds, according to folklore. They are noisy beggars, for something that could be mistaken for a queen bee as they dart rapidly by too fast to see clearly. They fly low and I've seen them going under a shed and under a building, which must be how they earned their latin name troglodytes troglodytes. Their "song" sounds a bit like some sort of drill.
