The black swan

Black swan

Bert Jansch – The black swan

Illustration by John Gould from The birds of Australia, London, 1840-1869 via the University of Glasgow’s Special Collections Department.  (If you’ve ever wanted to see a picture of a Sordid halcyon – or simply know that a bird with such a name exists, click on this link.  It and the other illustrations are beautiful.  Bert would have thought so too, I’m sure.)
