February 10th – there were a very large number of deer on the north heath – loafing in the marsh, and up in the woods towards Fly bay. There must have been 45 or so.
Of course, they always regather in herds in spring, and the animals were content to browse the scrub, meadow and heather and doze in the copses.
I still can’t believe we have these wonderful animals right here on our doorsteps. They are so beautiful.
