For the first time ever I ran two 10ks in a week, and my legs kind of hate me right now.
I listened to the last episode of season 3 of Serial and it was heartbreaking, as was this entire season.
Seagulls in the sunrise:
Not sure if you can see them there, but here are some baby Egyptian geese with their parents:
Seagulls perched on boats, which is pretty unusual, as they normally don’t fly this far up river.
A kingfisher perched on a wire:
And finally some Egyptian geese grazing near the path:
If you ever wanted to see a bat in flight, this is for you.
Set out early as we’re in the midst of a heat wave (yes, it’s November) and I didn’t fancy running in the sun.
So dark outside…
A few km in and I saw two herons resting on the water’s edge.
Then came the Egyptian geese:
And a mallard mom with her ducklings:
I love seeing the sun rise over the river:
And over a grumpy night heron:
More Egyptian geese on the way:
A little egret perched on a boat:
The starting line gate for upcoming Tel Aviv Night Run is already up:
A great 10k, my last one before the Night Run race.
Set out while it was still dark outside:
Was rewarded by an awesome sunrise:
And some Egyptian geese:
As well as a pied kingfisher on the hunt:
A white-throated kingfisher was perching on a wire above the boat dock (you can barely see him, I know, but they’re flighty, so I couldn’t get nearer):
I was super surprised to see a ring-necked dove, as they’ve been overrun by common pigeons:
On the way back I saw a gathering of kayaks in the sea, which was a first for me:
A little over 10K on a very interesting run:
My favourite prompt so far because it gave me an excellent excuse to draw the pufferfish.
