August 18th – After a dry few weeks it’s great to see the deer at Anglesey Basin, near Chasewater.
I’m sure I’ve seen this pair of ladies – either close pals or mum and daughter – many times before. The younger one is inquisitive and not easily spooked, whereas the older one seems a bit eccentric, is quite vocal and can be nervous.
I watched them for a while loafing in the meadow, amused at their green chins from the lush meadow they’d been browsing.
Such lovely faces and they look in very good condition considering how scruffy they looked during the moult a couple of months ago. They will be regrouping back into herd groups in coming weeks in preparation for the rut.
Welcome back, ladies.
