A mixed-discipline morning.
Cycled to marshalling at Parkrun (3.5 miles ish), managed to get one of the further flung bits of the Lollipop so I could birdwatch and botanise before actually needing to look chirpy and wave my arms around.
Saw some brent geese and (I think) some shelducks. Saw some very fast young persons as well.
Cycled back for some botanising as is the New Year Plant Hunt this weekend, mid-botanising I finally saw the Short-eared owl that frequents Long Rock.
Botanising finds (nothing really thrilling..) A total of about 7 miles cycled and 2 miles pottering with my bum in the air.
Possibly Picris echioides…
Probably Veronica persica
Probably Ranunculus repens
