I enjoy winter walking. My hill walk is along a narrow single-track road. It is hard to see much but I do my best, peering through though the roadside scrub, pausing whenever the trees thin out. I check the rustling of leaves….. a thrush turning leaves or a boar? Where is Fizz when you need her?
Half way up the hill there is a gap. This is the view over the Kei Ling Ha Forest. Just below this point is an area reliable for Asian Stubtail. Occasionally Crested Goshawks or Crested Serpent Eagles cruise overhead.And as I walk back down in the fading sun I am struck by the simple glow of setting sun on the roadside bank. Nothing in particular to see but it made me feel good.Back home to a joyful dog, demanding her afternoon snack, a call with an old friend, checking on my recovery and waiting now for Mrs. Ha to return. We will eat out tonight. A good end to a tedious day of sorting, throwing and packing things, ready for the movers.
