I've heard it said that the three R's are an important part of life.
Monday lunchtime we had a wander through part of Gosforth Park NR.
The sun shining through the trees which were yet to unfurl their leaves, making it a very pleasant, sheltered, and warm experience as we approached the Northern perimeter of the reserve.
Suddenly just to reinforce the belief, there they were, the three of them, all within a stones throw of each other-
Red Squirrel bounding along a fallen tree trunk
Roe Deer keeping an eye on us from a wooded glade.
Race Horses starting the 2.10 5f handicap.
The one mile straight of the course runs alongside the northern boundary of the reserve.
Checked the result the next morning and it was won by King of Eden, which I thought appropriate.
Also watched a tReecreeper but that didn't seem to fit to well.
An exceptional entertaining encounter .. mmm there's a thought, or maybe I've gone far enough with this line.
