    An ostrich, or ostrich like creature. In South Lanarkshire of all places! It was running beside me, about a metre away.

    Probably a Bustard
    No,definitely an ostrich/emu/rhea. it was in a large enclosure, not running wild. At first i actually thought it was some simpleton running beside me
  • Whilst riding off road near Afan Argoed saw a pigeon being chased and then caught by a pair of peregrine falcons virtually alongside me on a steep descent.

    It totally blew me away nature at its rawest right in front of me.

    After crossing the Golden Gat Bridge from San Francisco, saw a cougar* casually observing from the side of the road. Apparently they're quite common**, and occasionally attack cyclists.

    *Puma concolor, not a voracious older woman.

    **Both kinds.
