Neil Gits To See Wildlife

4th September 2020
Posted by Neil Matthew

I don’t think I could ever be described as someone who enjoys the world of nature. An ill-advised walk around a local bird sanctuary a couple of years ago brought out the worst in my otherwise dormant hayfever and my acute cynophobia means visiting anywhere that is attractive to dogs and their walkers is a complete no-go zone ! In recent weeks though my change of lifestyle has seen me develop an urge to get out of the house and get some fresh air if I have been stuck indoors for more than two days at a time. Usually that means a half hour or so drive in the car and sitting in a nice quiet free car park reading my big new football book with the window open !

Of course, this year I have been a bit more adventurous when needing a change of scene and embarked on some “photographic missions”. This week I combined another visit to Wolverhampton with a trip into Staffordshire to take a look at a highly recommended football ground, Chasetown FC, which is situated very close to a country park and large reservoir. Hoping to get a good shot, I walked across a footbridge which crosses the road separating the stadium from the water and though I couldn’t get the photo I wanted due to the height of surrounding trees, I did see the rugby club next door – with two large deer happily grazing on the pitch !! A very unexpected sight, photo taken, mission complete …

As usual, I had plenty of soul tunes in the car to listen to and I was checking out this month’s featured album which will be unveiled in my next live show on Monday at 7pm, but before then you can hear last week’s ‘repeat play’ this Saturday at 5pm and of course there is also the “Listen Again” facility for any catching up you need to do !
