A few weeks ago I was on my long run, about half a mile outisde the next village when I thought I saw a tortoise on the path. I told myself it must've been a leaf or something that looked like a tortoise, so thought no more about it.

Next day I was driving through the same village and saw a sign outside someone's house saying "Found - Tortoise".

I would definitely have stopped for a tortoise. I've always wanted a tortoise.

I didn't stop for the pants.

Kelly Brook sat on a bench in a stunning bikini, holding out a bottle of lucozade, and shouting, "come and get it big boy"

Or did I just dream that one??

Last night-dead hedgehog. Not run over, just keeled over by the looks of it in the middle of the pavement.

Previously-A car in the canal, a whore looking for business.

Saw a dog poo in the middle of the path once, as I passed by it moved. Of course I stopped to have a look, watched it intently for a few minutes, decided it was my imagination and as I was about to go again it moved! Only a cm but it moved! So I watched it some more, a few minutes later it moved again. By now I was curious, and scared! I got a stick, turned the turd over and underneath was a huge stag beetle! Not sure if it was just unlucky to be dumped on or if it was trying to build a new home.

A sewin swimming up the beach - it was so tempting to take it home for tea - but would have had to run 3 miles carrying a large slippery fish...

A police cordon and police across my path. Today, running in Hyde Park.

Before that a fox with a limp, out in full view in daylight in Greenwhich. Threw it some bits of biscuit (it could walk, so doubt the RSPCA would have been able to catch it).

20p the other day. Why can't I find notes?

A parrot!

Try running in SW London (eg Richmond). Parrots everywhere. They breed there now.

running with my dog he found a sheep that had fallen down a hill and couldn't get off its back. closest he ever came to using his sheepdog genes.

on one lunchtime run a few years ago I saw some dumped builder's rubble, a couple of TVs and fridges and  vibrator

A baby adder once, a slow worm once, and a young badger (all alive).   A weasel ran across my path one day - very fast.  More than a few dead foxes and badgers.

Oh, and damsons and sloes - there are loads and loads this year

£10 note, in pristine condition, neatly folded, right in the middle of the muddy path.

Spent £9 in Tesco on the way home from my run, plus a lottery ticket with the remaining £1, which won me another tenner. So I found £19, in a way.

Oh, and another tenner under a bench when I stopped to tie my shoelaces there before starting my run.

most recent find was a very handy folding gardening/pruning knife - works a treat
