Haar, Deer and Pheasants

An Eccentric Anomaly: Ed Davies's Blog

There are usually pheasants round the house I'm renting, my and my neighbour's garden are pretty much their home patch, so it wasn't at all surprising to see a male and female sheltering from the haar and drizzle outside the kitchen window while I was making dinner. When I came to put the plate in to soak, though, there was also a deer there.

The combination of the deer, pheasants and haar make me think I must be living in Scotland.

I don't think this was the same deer as last time as this one had a much more speckled back. I assume it's a female Roe deer.
