I eventually made a decision and bought a new bike. Its a Suzuki Intruder M800 and its my little Black Beauty!
Ok so its not so little, but it’s surprisingly easy to handle and i can get both feet on the ground which is a big plus for me! It is now adorned with a screen – the wind drag is awful without one – and some lovely leather saddlebags. Now all I need is some sunshine, but fat chance of that at the moment. I was out on Saturday and got absolutely drenched to the skin!
Anyway back to the title of this post – Wildlife on a bike”……………………. Well I see a lot of wildlife “on” bikes, but the more attractive kind is not riding a bike! I rode from LS16 through Otley and up over Asquith Moor recently, stopped to have a scan with the binoculars and was rewarded with curlews and lapwings.
These are the best photos I have of lapwings- they are not very well focused and I haven’t any of curlews.
Here are some views over the moors.
I’m a Londoner and am proud to have been born there but Yorkshire is definitely gods own county and I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else – thanks for adopting me Yorkshire.
