A walk in the woods
Yesterday we managed to get out for a short walk before it got dark in one of the local woodlands. I hadn't been there before so I had no idea what to expect.
We started off on normal forestry tracks which had lots of the usual tracks - people, dogs and vehicles. Then as we got a bit further in we started finding lots of deer tracks, and I mean lots! We also came across some old washed out fox scat that looked as if it had quite a few bits of pheasant in it.
The bird life was also very good with Buzzard and Bullfinch in prominence. Unfortunately I didn't have the long lens with me for the camera so missed out on some very good opportunities for photos. Lesson learnt.
As we progressed we came across more fox tracks, badger tracks, pheasant and more deer tracks. All in all, for a short inpromptu walk it was brilliant.
