Cliff is leading another walk for a local walking group later this month and needed to re-walk some of the route, I was keen to try out my smart new outdoor jacket (a find in TK Maxx at less than half price, earlier today) so late this afternoon we headed off over the fields . . .
As dusk approaches it's one of the best times to spot the local wildlife.
Shhhh! deer . . .
Can you see them? Our binoculars seem to have broken – would you believe it! Just when we needed them. And the camera only managed a couple of shots before the battery died – so I couldn't take a video of the herd as they leapt the ditch and ran over the field.
I'll have to ask you to use your imagination . . .
Cliff counted fifty Fallow Deer as they ran past us to the ridge of the field and then stood and watched us from the skyline.
