Ester Naomi Perquin: 'Tellen'




D. likes watching birds, I can come along. Look I say,

a garish magpie. Aaah, D. says,

that’s a Eurasian jay.


And there, at the water’s edge, a young

teal. Not exactly, D. says,

that’s a wigeon.


Very rewarding, bird-watching. We’ve only

just begun and we’ve already

seen four of them.
