Author's notes

I came across this single bird high in a hollow; more towards the centre of the hill. It was not doing much, with one eye apparently half-closed like it was napping. It did open the eye later on. I am guilty of anthropomorphising, as I had an image of a truly exhausted mum just catching a nap whenever she could.
