Regular readers of this drivel might remember me waffling on about a car-free bird race some while ago, well the good folks down at the North Pennines AONB have only gone and organised one.
The North Pennines isn't an area I am familiar with, other than several trips down there to look for the elusive SW Northumberland race of honey buzzard.....but this could be fun.
But even I, a committed coastal type who gets a nosebleed if I venture west of Morpeth, might well give this a go. I do like the principle of it, even if I have use to half a tank of diesel to get there.
Do they have buses in the N. Pennines? - I'd best find out. I wonder how many teams will have honey buzzard on their lists?
