What do you see on your runs?
I am very fortunate to live in a beautiful part of the UK, I use my surroundings and flowers and creatures to distract me as I am plodding along.
So far this week I have seen a pair of buzzards, a woodpecker hammering on a tree in the woods, endless rooks being very noisy, sheep and very soon lambs, primroses, violets and camelias as others have said. That is just the tip of the iceberg.
What do you see and what shall I look for tomorrow?
This is such a lovely topic. I’m really lucky to live quite rurally so I often see buzzards, rabbits, pheasant, foxes, bats, deer, kestrels, plus many of the common birds you’d expect! At the moment, there are lambs in a lot of the fields and some very fat horses. Hopefully that means foals to come! I really enjoy running the same routes through the year and watching how the landscape changes. Nature is a wonderful thing.
I'm like you, I live quite rural so most mornings I see lots of brown hares and last week the herd of roe deer stopped to watch me run by, deciding that I clearly wasn't a threat!🦌
