Anyway the safari truck's second excursion was a tad more successful than the first and didn't disgrace us in anyway. Must get those rock sliders fitted for extra bravery...it's hard to go full on if you risk seriously damaging your pride and joy.
Wildlifewise east Lancashire seems like a bird free desert on a cold wet miserable afternoon just a couple of Carrion Crows and the odd Woodpigeon knocking about. A Rabbit shot out from under one of the big rocks after the Zukis had been through the crawl, probably choking from the smell of burning rubber from their slipping tyres.
Where to next? Back to somewhere with wildlife, I think I'm too late to twitch the Wilson's Phalarope ...bugger!
In the meantime let us know how rocky the roads are in your outback.
And no environment was harmed during the making of this post - all done using recycled cooking oil...and I wasn't the only one.
