Cycled to work!
Inspired by the great weather of yesterday I decided today would be the day (and I'll freely admit this is very much overdue) that I would cycle to work for the first time this year. It's about an 18 mile round trip so it's good for the old fitness training. Of course as luck would have it the weather had broken and I was met with grey skies and a strongish wind from the north. My cycle in was easy, what with the wind being well and truly behind me. Coming home was a different story, the wind had not abated and it had been joined by a cold mist. Still, i didn't mind, it was great! Despite the wind direction there seemed to quite a few birds around, including a couple of Green Woodpecker, several Mistle Thrushes and a fair few Goldfinches, some of which may have been on passage I guess. Roll on the weekend.
