in the gorse

Lovely, I can see the pretty Yellowhammers perched in the whirling snow.

We have two male yellowhammers at our bird table - a joy to see as their heads are so bright.

oh Weaver, how wonderful, they're such bright birds aren't they? And are you feeding then 'a little bit of bread and no cheese?'

Beautiful. And I like gorse - the look of it, and the sound of the word itself.

Oh, I love this poem! I did not know what a Yellowhammer was, so I followed the link. Sorry to see they are endangered!
