A charm

And this morning they came. Brilliant, fast, convivial, flighty, an entire charm of goldfinches. They will not stay, they are simply enjoying the bounty of the late summer or early autumn which is what Scotland gives in August. They are passing through, and I hope, noting how many more feeding places, and hiding places, are coming into being here. They are like a visit from the Holy Spirit, golden and glorious, and then gone.
