I am lucky enough to walk to work every day and I love it. Admittedly not so much on a cold, soggy day but 9 times out of 10 it is the perfect start to the day. I find it clears my head in the morning, and takes me out of work mode after walking home at the end of a long day. My walk to work is along quite a main road, but despite this it is very leafy and green and I am surrounded by a bird song soundtrack nearly the whole way. From leaving the house to a great tit calling, to a song thrush chortling away and the tseeeps of a flock of long tailed tits en route- it really is lovely. Yes- I do measure my days in birdsong.
I’ve taken a big step for this post, and recorded my very first video. Eeek! I just thought that I wouldn’t be able to capture the joy I get from my daily walk in stills alone, so here is my very first, rather crudely edited, video- I hope you enjoy it. Of course it helps that I happened to choose a sunny day to film- a really gorgeous walking to work day in fact.
