Whenever I go out whether its to the shops or on one of my walks around a nature reserve or my usual lunchtime walk along the riverbank, I take the time to take a look around at my changing surroundings.
A new bypass has opened on my journey to work, which I don’t need to use but it has the knock on effect that my journey time has increased.
The riverside has changed a lot in the last few years, with building being demolished, new buildings taking their place and the addition of a new river bridge.
Nature changes from season to season. Leaves change colour, Flowers bloom, birds build nests and eggs are laid and chicks .
This time of year is a good time to watch birds feeding at bird tables.
And in Spring you can see
If you take time to look.
I find going for a walk clears my mind and often inspires my writing. I also get to meet the most interesting people, from avid birdwatchers who are more than happy to share their latest sightings, to the artist who paints what he sees.
