A polite way of describing conditions for todays walk could be “bracing”. I can think of more colourful and vivid phrases. I was back on farm tracks today starting on the rather romantically named Gibbet Lane. I was rewarded by seeing several wild deer. They are not easy to photograph as by the time you have taken your gloves off and organised your camera they are disappearing into the distance at a great rate of knots. Just managed to get a couple of them as seen above. Sadly in this area it is not uncommon to see the result of collisions between deer and road traffic. I also saw a green woodpecker but he was certainly not hanging around to be photographed.
