Burlish Top July 31st

Went on an ‘off topic’ visit to Burlish Top today. Enjoyed myself chasing the sunlight and getting out, felt a bit stuck indoors recently. Saw a juvenile woodpecker when I first arrived and then spooked as usual by the sound of lions roaring from the Safari Park nearby. I still can’t get used to the experience. I think my most haunting experience was being up here in deep snow a few years ago in complete isolation and hearing the sound of wolves. I had trouble convincing myself they were not dogs (Burlish Top is a very popular dog walking area) and a very poignant moment when I realised they were indeed wolves.
