I’m on vacation! I’m trying something very different—biking every day for eight + days with my friend Andrew Broan, who has been enjoying this sort of travel for decades.
Yesterday’s route was just under 50 miles through lovely countryside and charming Belgian villages.
We ended with a superb dinner and a night in a nice hotel in a 608-year-old building.
I am noting birds mostly by ear, but I’m going to have to review my Sylvia warbler songs. Eurasian Curlews in a field were a highlight, as the songs of Blackbirds everywhere. But this isn’t a birding trip, hence the big departure from my usual travel.
Handsome and huge Woodpigeons are everywhere, even competing with feral Rock Doves for dropped fries.
Another photo that might need explanation is this wood bee home installation that doubles as art.
