Sika Deer grazing the marsh close to Middlebere Farm. Really encouraging to see a relatively large herd. Over the years the numbers of deer appear to have declined in response to over zealous control measures. Fortunately the National Trust appear to be taking a more relaxed approach.
Interesting to note that even in mid August the deer are beginning to lose their summer coat.
Plenty of foxes to be seen with several well fed individuals watching from the adjacent fields.
With the hot, dry weather continuing an impressive, sub-tropical sunset seemed quite appropriate.
Plenty of Nightjars hunting over the heath including a superb view of one picked out by the car headlights perched up on a roadside post.
