Morning Nature Watch

Every morning we leave the house at 7 o'clock to take son n° 2 to catch the school bus, then MOH and I go onto work. This means we miss all the traffic by going in so early.

Each morning we see a variety of wildlife, mostly rabbits or hares running accross the road into the fields, I have even had a fox run across the road right in front of me, but this morning was the best ever.


We had been driving for a couple of minutes and we were just passing a copse of pine trees when 4 deer ran right in front of us to cross the road. They were all females and were no more than a metre in front of the car.
The last one was a bit slow and we nearly caught it with the car, but it managed to get out of the way in time.

What a lovely way to start the day

We have so many deer on the Island, they have become a nuisance. I've hit two in the last couple of years and the mess they can do to a car is just incredible. They also come into the garden and devastate the flowers and produce. I did have one sleeping off a hangover near the compost pile a while back after eating all the fermented apples from the cider press.

How wonderful - I love it when I glimpse them in the forest when I get the train to London.

Glad you didn't hit the deer; my hubby did that last fall. Deer seemed okay and ran off, but the car was a bit of a wreck.


And I nominated you for a Stylish blogger award. Check my blog for details! :)
