What a total surprise to see 3 young deer in the field this morning, have not seen these young beauties before and guess they have left the herd that are quite happy in the woodland about 1 mile from here, i just hope that they will stay around for the summer.
There is a young male amongst them who is just growing antlers and looks very much like Thomas from last year, but i am pleased to say Thomas is doing very well roaming the fields of the national trust very close to me, hopefully if they stay then i will get closer to them and give them all name’s so let us see what happens, i am just delighted that we have them here where they are safe.
Tilly was up to her tricks of catching bugs bunny the last couple of days, not 1 but 2 were laid to rest due to them both having the dreadful mixi disease which leaves them hopelessly blind and not capable of doing anything other than suffer.
After leaving the bunnies to rest in the field i was amazed to look in the sky and to see us surrounded by red kite’s hovering above, in total 7 of these lovely birds were ready to feast on our furry friend.
And what a meal they had, they were like scavengers at a feeding frenzy diving down at speed and pecking what they could get, not a lot was left they had skinned poor bunny down to the bones more or less
Tilly has been in good form and despite everything that has been a distraction she is still pulling golf balls from the thorn bushes and our collection is underway again after clearing 2200 balls to an online golfing shop.
Going back to the woods now….
