For the birds

Living and working in the city it’s sometimes easy to forget that the countryside exists. Between the high-rises and the pavements there’s not much space for greenery, beyond the occasional lonely sapling or tuft of grass valiantly emerging through the concrete.

But it’s still there, nature – if you know where to look.

And, of course, if you don’t discount the foragers and scavengers, the much-maligned flying rats that populate the side streets and shopping precincts.

They’re rather handsome if you catch them at the right angle, don’t you think?
