I have a poem in the new edition of the still new Nitrogen House...Scotland based e-zine. Nice site, nice editor, also keen on short stories.

Great poem, Seth. I thoroughly enjoyed it and knew it would have a lovely close. Nicely observed.

Well done Seth. The Wheatear makes an appearance in the latest edition of Bird Watching, apparently the name was a C17 invention to replace a more 'vulgar' Anglo-Saxon name!

Mac, yes, my father insists on sometimes calling it a whitearse.
