Photo article - I've never seen this beastie in the wild before today

Today, I went on my latest training walk ahead of the 33 mile Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks Trek in May. BTW, if you have not yet sponsored me do so HERE. Anyhow, on today's 19 miler I was at about the five mile mark passing under the road bridge over the Avon just shy of Hanham Weir, when I spotted a small furry creature by the path.

Photo Article: Woodlarks Training Walk Number two - part 4, through the mud to the finish

Having got my sums wrong (again), I was delighted when, at last, the viaduct which takes the Bitton railway over the river Avon, came into sight. I was still six minutes ahead of the schedule I had set myself and so, if my new sums were right, would reach the finishing line, the pub at Hanham Weir, shortly before the Mrs and Joshua arrived at two thirty. So I walked down from the railway line towards the path by the river. Uh Oh...thick squelchy mud, I couldn'r go over it, I could go round it I had to go through it. Squelch, squerch, Apologies to the Bear Hunt for that.

Photo Article: My first training walk for Woodlarks 2019 - Part 3: the second half

On May 25 I shall again join the rogue bloggers (now a band of 8) walking 33 miles from Horse Hill to Woodlarks to raise money for this amazing charity. Serious training started today with a 12 mile walk from my front door to the Swan at Swineford with a slight detour to the cashpoint machine in my local high street. Evidence of the second half of that trek is below.
