I took this photo this afternoon on a drive into Donegal. There is an area of flatlands between Burt and Bridgend which is a haven for wildlife. The weather was cold but the sun shone and the evening light on the Donegal hills was particularly lovely.
This is just a small corner of a field which will be the temporary home for these wild geese until it is time to move on.
I have added a favourite poem. I hope you like it.

WILD GEESE BY MARY OLIVER
You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting —
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.
