A haiku is a traditional Japanese style of non-rhyming poem that has become popular in many languages. It usually appears as three lines – one of five syllables, one of seven and one of five – and the subject is often the natural world.
Each of the following haikus describes a British bird – all of them common in Derbyshire, often in gardens. Can you work out what they are?
Many thanks to Matlock Area u3a member Will Martin who has written the haikus
