It was small wonder, then, that he suddenly flung down his brush on the floor, said 'Bother!' and 'O blow!' and also 'Hang spring-cleaning!' and bolted out of the house without even waiting to put on his coat.

Species of North American ring-plover, the name imitative of its cry
a lost shorebird circling the waves of the hills
in the Outer Hebrides, a rare visitor
what I hear in the dark when the stroke of the umze fades
