The sun is shining and the air is taut with the electricity of anticipation. The weekend heralds yet more Dove Step training!
Before the next chapter of this adventure is written I thought I would take the opportunity to do a quick round up.
Training is progressing extremely well, I know all the team has cleaned the 100km mark distance wise this month alone and Tris has actually run over 100 miles! You can read about the Peak District training weekend and Robs reflections on last week via the last couple of posts.
I noticed that the miles covered this month have resulted in a leathery / callused sole on both feet. An interesting new feature! If I feel sufficiently confident I may post a picture in the coming days.
Otherwise ‘The Journey‘ page has been updated with more detail including the leaving date (29th March), where we intend to be each day and the RSPB reserves we will visit. Do take a look and any offers of accommodation, food and drink along the route would be most valiant.
I am sure some readers will have noticed the buzz around the newly released BTO Bird Atlas both online and also in the mainstream press. We are of course wondering what the atlas will show us about Turtle Doves… to that end look out for a post next week, when all will be revealed!
Till then we are ‘Marching on… rain or shine‘!
