December 2nd – Again on the far side of Hortonwood in Telford, I was returning from a meeting using the Silkin Way national Cycle Route 81 that runs along the A518 between Trench and the massive industrial park I had visited.
On a cycleway that I would have thought might have been almost forgotten, and some way from houses or nearby factories, a makeshift bird table at the side of the track, apropos of nothing.
On it, a selection of fruit and seed – all fresh with a nearby audience I’d disturbed of birds and squirrels.
Someone tends this lovingly, regularly. It’s well kept. It’s a thing of dedication, love and kindness for them.
Stranger, I have no idea who you might be, but for looking after a small corner of your world so beautifully, I wish you the very best my friend.
