A week or so back your intrepid team headed into the outside world to see what Spring had brought us, to look for the new buds and evidence of the season making its presence known. What we saw on a walk at Owler Bar was a little unexpected. We startled a family of Red Deer, and so got our first chance to photograph something in nature bigger than a bird 😉 First time either of us had seen red deer in the wild, in contrast to herds kept on large estates. The stag is only a young one, with antlers showing that he’s got a year or two to grow yet.
Within a short minute, they had been alerted to us, and raced off across the moor, blending in until we could no longer see them.
