If an effort to notice more in my life, I have decided to share what I have noticed this week in Take Three Thursday. The idea is to take 3 photos that are linked some how; by theme, by colour, by date, by moment, by points of view. There is no formal link in but please feel free to join in. What have you noticed this week?
See what some others have noticed this week:

This week while I was wandering about, I noticed several old & overgrown & mostly abandoned railway tunnels. I was talking with a local farmer who told me these were once all created & used by the local farmers to move livestock from one field to another. When the rail line was put in & subsequent highway, it cut the fields in two, the railway company had to install tunnels to allow safe passage of livestock from one field to the other. Two of the tunnels were for large livestock, which are obvious by size but one smaller one was created & used for poultry & water fowl, although I am convinced the farmer was pulling my leg! Old land maps do show that there was once a large duck/goose farm in the area. All these livestock farms have since been sold on to developers for estate homes Footprints in the snow & mud show that currently the tunnels are in active use by the local wildlife such as foxes, raccoons & coyotes.
