The Leicestershire round is a 100 mile long distance footpath that circumnavigates the city of Leicester. Here is my blog of my journey around this fantastic path. On the first day it was cracking day with some great wildlife observations. We saw a tree creeper and a Green woodpecker in Bradgate Park and a melanistic bunny beyond that. The day started cold but got much better to the very end. All in all a great day. Role on next week!
