Floss, Ted and I went for our early morning walk – out by 07.00 while it is still quiet – on the golf course that surrounds Mum’s house.
Immediately, I saw a large dog fox run past and quickly vanish again.
And then, a little way away, we saw two deer grazing by the old stag oak – possibly a mother and this year’s youngster.
Everywhere was quiet and it really was the most perfect of mornings. So peaceful.
Floss was with Ted (he is on a lead permanently) while I took photos trying to capture just how special it all was.
And then we saw someone watching us.
He was a big buck – a roe deer, I think. He watched us for a while before bounding off doing those silly bouncy hops. We laughed and thought of Lambie who doesn’t ever do them anymore. He’s far too fat now though he did have a nice bounce on him when he was small.
