the boars are back in Britain

The tusks are for entrenching, for earth-moving, for looting bulbs under the trees and tearing strips in fields. I waited at my corner of the wood and watched them pass again. They did not make as much noise as I had imagined. Their gait was dainty, their bellies high off the ground, their steps precise and decisive.

Lovely short essay about encounter with boars in British woods.
