We were given a wonderful treat a week ago yesterday. Lily came running into my bedroom saying ‘Mummy, quick – there’s DEERS outside!’
I jumped out of bed and there indeed were 6 deer frolicking around in the field outside (not 4 as I say on the film). They must have been there for 15 or 20 minutes that we saw. They were full of the joys of spring, the 2 bucks chasing the does around, and plenty of flirting going on!
It’s so special because in 10 years of living here, backing onto woodland and further up the moorland beyond, I have only seen the deer from my house about 4 times. Roe deer are pretty big, too. How they manage to be so secretive, I don’t know.
You will also be treated to the sound of me trying to encourage my son to wake up and get out of bed!
