Red Backed Shrike

Red Backed Shrike

After an extremely stressful day, we decided to go for a ride on Feisty. We went to a beautiful little hidden spot which has a bar and trout ponds out in the countryside. The place was empty apart from us and a pretty young blonde barmaid who kept hidden inside. A metal, Japanese-like bridge crossed the ponds and, along with various bird song, the occasional splash of trout jumping could be heard.

Two Red Backed Shrike (Lanius collurio) flirted with one another as the sun began to set. An extremely peaceful place that I was reluctant to leave. I really need to cleanse my thoughts and achieve a much more spiritual, natural state of mind before I start work on my film project. The real world keeps kicking that down, though. Very frustrating.
