I'm feeling rather ambivalent about nature at the moment. This morning I saw, what I think is the resident Magpie, eating a baby bird. It was treating this feather-less and helpless newborn as so much meat and the whole event put me in a strange state of mind. I stopped watching Meerkat Manor because in one episode whilst a mother was away from the nest and looking for sustenance, a dominant male Meerkat attacks and eats her three new-born pups. It devoured them with such relish that I just couldn't stomach it. I don't know why I let these things affect me. Perhaps it's about helplessness and injustice. Anyway, just had to vent this here. Otherwise, it's sunny today and not so cold. Spring is on the way.
