Deer sign 1


Nicola, Willow and I went for a walk around King’s Wood today.  The weather was great and the wood was almost entirely free of other people.  We spent a good 4 hours wandering around and saw a lots of sign.  We also got a really good view of a green woodpecker tapping away.  Spotted loads of deer sign, some of which we followed, but didn’t get to see any, probably a combination of the time of day and having Willow with us.  Anyway, I took these photos of a deer track and scat.
