In the Distance



  Go on .........Sing it......................"Draw those curtains wide"

And I do (draw the curtains wide NOT the singing!) every morning and look out on empty fields, hedgerows and trees and sometimes someone with a dog walking the footpath across the fields.

So when something looks just a bit different, it's easy to notice.

And I rushed downstairs for my camera

And I zoomed in right across the field and saw three deer, proper deer, not the pesky Muntjacs that show no fear and eat the trees.



 I stood watching through the zoom lens for a while and then as they started to move off  I counted five




If you look up Fallow Deer it says "relatively common and widely distributed throughout southern England".

That may be true but not often seen from my bedroom window!

PS Oh Goody Blogger is changing all the way things are done on blogs - do wish they wouldn't bother.

    1. You're right, I can't find it either. I started this one before it changed - now cant see a New Post label anywhere

    2. Oh I see - you can only get into the New Post bit at the top of the Blog page on my laptop and not from the Posts Page

    3. At the bottom righthand corner of the Posts page is a round red button with a + click on it to do a new post.

  4. Love your view, and bonus wildlife. We are all with you on the blogger thing - apparently it is to make it easier to blog from your smart phone...

  5. Isn't it annoying. When things are going swimmingly well, knocking out a blog post in minutes because it is easy, then they tinker with the works. I haven't dared look yet, spose I ought to.

    1. Be brave - it's not too bad just takes a bit longer

    2. I hope you’re right Sue, all I need as I limp along blooming is a ruddy curve ball.

      Love the photo of the deer what a wake up!

    3. And as for this predictive text, it thinks it knows what I want to say... as if? The word ‘blooming’ should be blogging!

  6. Obviously I am missing something, I don't know who Elbow are! Great shots of the deer, what a beautiful and joyful sight to find.

    1. p.s. I tried using the new blogger and it's horrible. Just horrible.

    2. Elbow are pretty good!
      The new blogger is not too bad - on a laptop anyway. I managed OK - and I'm hopeless with technology!

  8. How lovely to see the deer. Isn't it wonderful when you can draw the curtains and look out at such a wonderful view.

    As for changing blogger, I too wish they wouldn't! It was bad enough last time they did it. Why fix something that ain't broke?!

  9. For a year or 2 we've had a pair of fallow deer walk across the field beyond our back garden. Recently though there's only been one....I wonder what happened to the other. I only have my phone for photos and the zoom is nowhere near good enough to take pics of the deer.

  10. I loved watching the deer while we lived at Jointers, both Fallow and Muntjac.
    There they didn't eat any of our veggies, too much open farmland around us I guess for them to even want to wander close to the house, but in Berkshire the deer ate more of our veggies than we did :-(

  11. Enjoyed the music and the deer, there are compensations when you live on your own ;)

  12. What a glorious way to start off a new day. It is so special to see wildlife wandering around like that, although I suppose they can also be a pest at times.
    I've been trying the new blogger. I felt it wasn't very user-friendly but no doubt will get used to it. Enjoy your day :)

  13. I love your photos of the deer. We've been watching Springwatch and as there've been fewer people out and about during the lockdown, the more shy animals have been putting in an appearance. Animals and birds that don't often come to our shores have also been spotted. Of course, now some restrictions have been lifted, things will go back to how they were; so we should enjoy theses rare sighting whilst we may. Best, Jane x

  15. The herds around here have been out on the A11 dual carriageway both at our end and in Suffolk at Elveden.

  16. White tailed deer are common here. Sometimes we have to be careful when driving at dusk or dawn and watch for them crossing the roads. But they are always wonderful to see. Lucky you to catch sight of them! -Jenn

  17. You got some wonderful photos! I enjoyed seeing these. I meant to tell you yesterday that I love your new header photo!

    I have not looked at the new blogger yet but it says it changes in June here. I hate when they change something like that!

    1. The new header is the bottom of my meadow where the footpath goes out onto the field

  18. Oh heck, not something new with blogger again, botheration.
    How wonderful to see that sight from the bedroom window.
    My daughter spotted something from her bedroom window, 2 vandals breaking in to a neighbours car, the mobile phone has its uses for stuff like that and the police were very pleased with her footage. I'm sure she would have preferred to see your sight instead.

  19. Ugh I hope I can work out how to post!

    We live in the city but we have deer come to our garden all the time, especially once food gets scarce once winter comes. Our neighbourhood is fairly wooded with lots of trees and quite close to the park where I walk so I suppose my garden isn't far to come. They come in the summer then, lovely to see but I don't know how to stop them eating all my veg - given up growing it as I was feeding them and not us lol
