Young Deer back in the field / Red Kite Feast !

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.20130328_102903-120130328_102849-120130329_10501920130329_105616-1

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.

    I do like the manner in which you have presented this challenge and it really does offer me personally a lot of fodder for consideration.
    However, through everything that I have personally seen, I basically
    wish when the responses pile on that individuals stay on point and in no
    way start on a tirade associated with some other news du jour.
    Yet, thank you for this outstanding piece and whilst I do not necessarily concur with the idea in totality, I value your standpoint.
