Encounter on the Hill

Algy-and-the-coos-PWS-encounter-220217.jpg

Algy had a strange encounter on the hill last week…

Shortly after this photo was taken, the black coo cautiously approached Algy, one step at a time, evidently unsure what this strange creature might be. Eventually the coo came close enough to reach out and discover whether a fluffy bird was something a hielan’ coo could eat… Of course Algy knew that coos do not eat birds, but nevertheless he thought it prudent to consider the “encounter” at an end at that point, and fly away to a safer spot where he could not be munched by a large, hairy animal 🙂

Dear friends,

A wee bird told Algy that you were interested in photos on the theme “Encounter”, so he would like to share with you this photographic record of a certain real-life encounter which he experienced in person this week.

With fluffy hugs from the wild west Highlands of Scotland, from Algy… and friends 🙂

If you live in a remote area in the bleak mid-winter, it’s always comforting to have a chat with others who are facing the same challenges. So, when Algy passed some local residents on his way back from the Post Office, he paused to discuss various issues which they shared in common, such as how best to maintain full fluffiness in the sleet and snow, and the most appropriate hairstyles for freezing temperatures…

With gales raging across the West Highlands of Scotland again for the past few days, Algy has found it impossible to have any new adventures without risking being blown far out to sea… but when he spotted some of these hairy local residents sheltering from the wind, it reminded him of this post from a couple of years ago, so he decided to reblog it for those friends who may not have seen it before 🙂
