Charlene Hundred Day Diary 2 Comments

Day 84 of 100, Nordjylland, Danmark

An account of the wildlife that we’ve encountered walking around the area:

  • Rådyr (roe deer)
  • Pheasants – which make some strange sounds and run funny (that’s me, categorically scientific)
  • Hares
  • Moles
  • All kinds of birds – sparrows, enormous seagulls, hawks, starlings, and the northern lapwing (vibe) among them
  • Various bugs, some entirely too close for comfort
  • Foxes

Today we encountered a fox, which is the dark smudge below the line of trees in the picture above. They normally disappear like smoke when they get wind of us. This one was so engrossed in digging for… whatever it is foxes eat in the freshly planted field, that we managed to get about twenty metres of it before it noticed us and flashed away.

(Yes, it’s dark and cold again, Moody pictures, here i come!)

      Heh! Yes indeed. I have heard about those ticks. We never venture into actual forests though. Everything around these parts is cultivated land.
