Sue’s write photo challenge this week is entitled Harbinger
I remember the rhyme from my childhood and also the children’s TV programme.
They say one is for sorrow, and this little chap suggests sad tidings.
But what if he’s not? For all we know he could be doing the Dance of the Seven Feathers to entertain the fledgings, or maybe he’s finding his feet (or wings) having been transformed into a magpie by an evil witch.
Then again, maybe he’s just shy having been caught on camera.
