Middlebere Farm

Sika Deer, Middlebere Farm

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.

Fox waiting for a friendly face.

Plenty of foxes to be seen with several well fed individuals watching from the adjacent fields.

Sunset over Middlebere.

With the hot, dry weather continuing an impressive, sub-tropical sunset seemed quite appropriate.

The last rays of a fading sun.

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.
