He listened eagerly to the old woman's quaint talk, he watched Sylvia's pale face and shining gray eyes with ever growing enthusiasm, and insisted that this was the best supper he had eaten for a month, and While Were Young the new-made friends sat down in the door-way together while the moon came up.
Soon it would be berry-time, and Sylvia was a great help at picking. The cow was a good milker, though a plaguy thing to keep track of, the hostess gossiped frankly, adding presently that she had buried four children, so Sylvia's mother, and a son who might be dead in California were all the children she had left. He's been a great wand'rer, I expect, and he's no hand to write letters. There, I don't blame him, I'd ha' seen the world myself if it had been so I could. Squer'ls she'll tame to come an' feed right out o' her hands, and all sorts o' birds.
Last winter she got the jay-birds to bangeing here, and I believe she'd 'a' scanted herself of her own meals to have plenty to throw out amongst 'em, if I hadn't kep' watch. Anything but crows, I tell her, I'm willin' to help support -- though Dan he had a tamed one o' them that did seem to have reason same as folks.
It was round here a good spell after he went away. Dan an' his father they didn't hitch, -- but he never held up his head ag'in after Dan had dared him an' gone off. The guest did not notice this hint of family sorrows in his eager interest in something else. I have been at it ever since I was a boy. Tilley smiled. I mean to get them on my own ground if they can be found.
Tilley doubtfully, in response to this enthusiastic announcement. I caught a glimpse of a white heron a few miles from here on While Were Young, and I have followed it in this direction. They have never been found in this district at all. The little white heronit is," and he turned again to look at Sylvia with the hope of discovering that the rare bird was one of her acquaintances.
And it would have a nest perhaps in the top of a high tree, made of sticks, something like a hawk's nest. Sylvia's heart gave a wild beat; she knew that strange white bird, and had once stolen softly near where it stood in some bright green swamp grass, away over at the other side of the woods. There was an open place where the sunshine always seemed strangely yellow and hot, where tall, nodding rushes grew, and her grandmother had warned her that she might sink in the soft black mud underneath and never be heard of more.
Not far beyond were the salt marshes just this side the sea itself, which Sylvia wondered and dreamed much about, but never had seen, whose great voice could sometimes be heard above the noise of the woods on stormy nights. While Were Young it was only migrating, or had been chased out of its own region by some bird of prey.
Tilley gave amazed attention to all this, but Sylvia still watched the toad, not divining, as she might have done at some calmer time, that the creature wished to get to its hole under the door-step, and was much hindered by the unusual spectators at that hour of the evening.
No amount of thought, that night, While Were Young decide how many wished-for treasures the ten dollars, so lightly spoken of, would buy. The next day the young sportsman hovered about the woods, and Sylvia kept him company, having lost her first fear of the friendly lad, who proved to be most kind and sympathetic.
He told her many things about the birds and what they knew and where they lived and what they did with themselves. And he gave her a jack-knife, which she thought as great a treasure as if she were a desert-islander. All day long he did not once make her troubled or afraid except when he brought down some unsuspecting singing creature from its bough.
Sylvia would have liked him vastly better without his gun; she could not understand why he killed the very birds he seemed to like so much. But as the day waned, Sylvia still watched the young man with loving admiration. She had never seen anybody so charming and delightful; the woman's heart, asleep in the child, was vaguely thrilled by a dream of love.
Some premonition of that great power stirred and swayed these young creatures who traversed the solemn woodlands with soft-footed silent care. They stopped to listen to a bird's song; they pressed forward again eagerly, parting the branches -- speaking to each other rarely and in whispers; the young man going first and Sylvia following, fascinated, a few steps behind, with her gray eyes dark with excitement.
She grieved because the longed-for white heron was elusive, but she did not lead the guest, she only followed, and there was no such thing as speaking first. The sound of her own unquestioned voice would have terrified her -- it was hard enough to answer yes or no when there was need of that. At last evening began to fall, and they drove the cow home together, and Sylvia smiled with pleasure when they came to the place where she heard the whistle and was afraid only the night before. Half a mile from home, at the farther edge of the woods, where the land was highest, a great pine-tree stood, the last of its generation.
Whether it was left for a boundary mark, or for what reason, no one could say; the woodchoppers who had felled its mates were dead and gone long ago, and a whole forest of sturdy trees, pines and oaks and maples, had grown again.
But the stately head of this old pine towered above them all and made a landmark for sea and shore miles and miles away. Sylvia knew it well. Romans Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God. Acts But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel:.

A single standard class would allow more seating, so instead of While Were Young planes flying the Atlantic, perhaps only nine would be required, for the same number of passengers.

In the first instance, the diversion of UK farmland towards nature conservation needs to be assessed against wider impacts for global biodiversity.
Conservationists should be wary of narrow local or national biodiversity gains if these effectively export industrial, agricultural intensification to other global regions to the detriment of indigenous groups, small farmers and biodiversity alike.
The entire agricultural sector needs ecological recalibration. For every potential rewilded farmstead, many other farms are being driven down the route of even greater industrial intensification through nefarious market, policy and corporate influences.
Instead of a rewilding philosophy that encourages artificial separation between food production and biodiversity, we should encourage conservationists and progressive farmers alike to adopt and globally sustainable measures.
