The sit spot is sometimes the best way to see nature, to just sit still in one place. Not only does it provide an opportunity for a little more sleep but it helps you to blend into the landscape and this is just about perfect for watching and listening to the local residents and seeing the stars.
You may need to get up early, or stay up late to do this, but if you do, the payback will be immediate.
Find yourself a quiet place, perhaps against a tree for support and then just relax with a drink in hand. Don’t move too much and try to be downwind of any specific site you are interested in such as a badger sett or a deer track. That’s it… nothing much really.
