Crouched in the shadow of a silver birch cluster, I lifted my head and sniffed the breeze. The earthy musk of damp moss and soil filled my nostrils, but there was a hint of something else; something warm and wild.
I remained still, listening for the rustle of movement.
Something ahead, hidden in the dappled green of the forest.
Without taking my eyes off the trees, I reached down and snatched a pinch of last autumn’s leaves. Brown and dusty, they blew towards me when I sprinkled them in the air, and I knew that whatever was out there would not be able to smell me. I was under the wind.
