Under the leaves brings nearly 600 golf balls.

January 24, 2015

Well just by chance i kicked up a few leaves and scattered them which in turn showed a couple of pearly white balls buried in some mud, i walked further and noticed the green keepers cutting back tree branches which made it easy for me to get near the fence line, i couldn’t believe what started to appear right in front of my eyes, golf balls of all colours many that had probably laid there for a very long time, but quite warm and not as cold as i expected they would be considering the weather.


This is just a few of what we had, it certainly kept us warm, in the first day 127 recovered, 249 on the second day and today over 2 visits just short of 296 not bad going from a 12 metred area of leaves, i have to sort them as i have people waiting for ProV and Nike along with Srixon.


Couldn’t believe my luck to see this huge fella sneaking around the fields, and what a bonus on Wednesday to look out my window and watch 3 deer eating veg on the allotments.

As i sit here typing i can hear  the young foxes calling, it wont be long before Scraggy arrives for her daily feast, she arrives every night and her arrival time now is usually around 22:00 i am seeing them more in the woodland now than ever before in morning time, they must be quite hungry to be scouting at that time, so i must go and fix scraggy some porridge….it will fill him up for the night hopefully

Back soon bye bye !


The Deer huddled together keeping warm.

February 11, 2013

Managed a few pictures before dark of the beauties who look quite comfortable back in the fields despite the very cold wind blowing right through the field.


I am so pleased that they have returned after nearly 3 weeks away and look forward to them being with me during the warmer weather when i can chart there progress and watch for any new arrivals.


The family are complete and it is amazing how they all stick together like glue, we do have one tyrant in the family who is also quite nosey and likes to get a bit closer than the rest.


There is a old stable in the far corner of the field that i am going to tidy up for them, a few bales of straw to make it a little more comfortable for them and in future i will start leaving vegetable peelings scattered on a trail that will lead them to the barn and give them protection from the cold and lots of what they like as they have been seen recently in nearby allotments helping themselves to whatever they fancy.

Do you have any pictures of Deer or Foxes you would like to share? please forward them to me or maybe you might have your own special place to go walking i would like to hear your tales !
