Spotted a mole scuttling about the patio in the rain first thing. Incredibly fast, with comically short legs. My first ever sighting of a live mole.

There’s barely a page without a surprising fact…whether it’s about a vacuum flask, a hawk or a bilberry. […] Begin the book as you would a moorland walk, happy to put the route map away and just follow where the sheep trods take you—then you’ll likely find the surprising turns and unexpected views a suitable reward.
