Sometimes, you have to go and actively seek out wildlife in order to see it. Sometimes you might only see it from afar. More often than not you don’t see it at all.
To that end I’m always saying how keeping still, keeping quiet and remaining patient are the best ways of seeing wildlife out in the open. That remains the case but even I’d admit there are times when, notwithstanding a nuclear blast down the road, wildlife is hell-bent on making itself known to you.
Sometimes, it seems, said wildlife throws itself at you regardless of whether or not you’re looking for it. And last week while I was working at Almondell & Calderwood Country Park this happened to me not once, not twice….but THREE times in three days!
