cote



Centrally placed potence within four-sided dovecot, built 1600. 
It's a temple with pairs of niches. Eggs were like lightbulbs







or pebbles in their rock-pockets on the beach.








And now the cooing from the cote has ceased, 
there's a mewing of curlews,







and a bell
that rings – No Passing Landwards – it rings.
