A Dog Like Mali
I met this lovely dog at Fishers Green. He looks quite similar to gorgeous Mali who has been awarded the Dickin Medal, the animal equivalent of the Victoria Cross. http://uk.businessinsider.com/mali-the-british-army-dog-wins-dickin-medal-for-valour-in-afghanistan-2017-11?r=US&IR=T
I popped into the Bittern Hide at 4:30 before I left and the eponymous bird was shaking its feathers and getting ready for bed. (Extras)
Today's poem is Snow by Louis MacNeice. https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poems/91395/snow-582b58513ffae
A poem about being alive. Snow would show off the bittern beautifully.
