Tuesday was spent continuing to walk transects over the railway target’s interior area and there is definitely a different assemblage of training finds. It was also a day for wildlife sightings, with two crows chasing a fox, two hares fighting, and a lot of skylarks.

Picture of the day:

The weather was very odd on Tuesday – bands of cloud sweeping rapidly overhead brought intervals of snow and hail in between bursts of very bright sun. I felt like I was in the Zone.
