Every so often nature throws a little something our way just to add a bit of spice, a touch of zest to what was just another average ride-out. Thinking about it, over the years I’ve tickled a dove, knocked out a sheep and sent a pheasant knock, knock, knocking on Heavens door. In fact the biggest thing I’ve hit is a cow, but that’s a whole other story. So the other day, when this Buzzard and I almost met (intimately!) I don’t quite know who got the bigger surprise.
Bear in mind that GoPro’s and cameras with wide-angle lenses make things look a lot further away than they really are …….. believe me, he was close enough to smell his aftershave!
