Bird in the Courtyard
This little bird was a frequent visitor to the courtyard of our riad, chirruping cheerfully and hoovering up the crumbs from breakfast from the tiled floor.
Rashida, our housekeeper, apologised for the dawn chorus provided by the birds, who liked to roost in the trees and shrubs growing in the shelter of the courtyard walls, beside the pool and fountain. I am used to birdsong at home and enjoy it: as I said to her, it gives me pleasure.
