2500 Miles June Update
June was yet another poor month (and so far July has followed suit) in terms of walking, I had a few days out, but my mileage is way down on where I wanted it to be, although still just about ahead of schedule. I must make a concerted effort through the rest of July to walk to and from work again, and on school runs. These miles are not going to walk themselves after all.

 

I should also point out I’ve passed the halfway point in both the year and my target of miles so not doing too badly really.

June Total: 173.48
2017 Total: 1311.63

Donations

I don’t believe I had any through June, so still just under half way, hopefully this will pick up again soon, as it is first and foremost a great charity to support, and secondly a great motivator to get me out and about, something I clearly lack at the moment.

Best Bits

With the weather heating up I’ve started walking with my macro a lot more, and specifically I’ve been out looking for Butterflies and Dragonflies, in fact at least three of this months walks have been specifically to find them, the best of them being my Butterfly & Dragonfly Walk.
But of course shorter walks around the patch have also been good, like Chattering Masses, a day with Sand Martin, House Martin and Konik Horses.
I also had one special day out looking for Small Blue butterflies at Stonepit Fields.
