It was cold, but there was still plenty of light. It was an ideal evening to go for a walk through the gardens in the center of Segovia. A little bird appeared out of nowhere and took up his position at the end of a branch in one of the highest trees. He stayed there for a good while (maybe it was only a minute, but it seemed like ages to me), taking a good look around from his vantage point. We’ve lost the habit of looking up as we walk along, when, even in cities, nature gifts us with wonderful sights such as this little bird seeing out the day.
