« on: October 04, 2019, 09:26:50 pm »
Looking at adding a Points game to the ACH Steam Ride SR: www.steamride.co.uk

Close encounters only... e.g. cows behind a fence in a field don't count..

Points       Sighting  'wild-life'
1    horse, sheep, cows
2    dog, cat, fox, bulls (crossing road), pheasant, rabbit, hare
3    Deer, kestrel, kite
4    Stoat, weasel, badger, lamas, snakes, Eagle
5    Albino Deer, Platoon in camouflage on maneuvers, UFO  :o

Any more suggestions to add to the list  & points...

I'm reminded of a report of a trout (or was it a salmon?) on uk.rec.cycling's novelty roadkill thread.  Fish should be pretty high scoring...

I think an eagle's* worth more than 3, even in that London.






*not of the walk wasting variety, obv.

Was thinking live..  some else may have already counted that one earlier  :o

Good point, Eagle 4 :-)

I'll check if Eskdalemuir is on the LeJog  route  next year :-)
