Crooked House

A country life in France

Oh, deer

Nell and I had a lovely walk this morning. The weather has cooled considerably and there was a very pleasant breeze. We both made better time than of late.

On our way round we saw a young buck. Very small and slight as yet, with his antlers just growing in, he was head down, grazing and hadn’t noticed us so I just stood very still and watched him. When he finally realised that we were there he turned and looked me in the face fr the longest time before leaping away, barking his alarm call.

No, of course I didn’t get a photo. You can guarantee that the only time I see deer is when the camera is at home!

No Kingfishers at the lake today but there was a Great White Egret.

Saw two cars and three people today – both of which are more uncommon sightings on our daily walk than are either Egret or Deer.

Got something to say?
