Yellowhammer photo by John Fox from birdwatchireland.ie
A very handsome yellowhammer bravely stayed put in the hedge and eyed me as I passed.
Lines of too many crosses at the American War Memorial.

He played a spine-tingling montage of archived 1940’s London street sounds and spoke movingly of how our forefathers might have given more importance to sounds than we do today. His website.
