Muntjac sighting

The weather was a bit miserable yesterday and I was getting ready to collect the wee man from pre-school when I looked out of our bedroom window and saw a Muntjac deer in the wilderness next door to us. We've seen them a few times in the garden, usually singly but last time we saw a buck, doe and kid together. I also saw some birds of prey gliding over the garden and a couple of pheasants too over the course of a few minutes.

A few of the bulbs are coming up too so spring is in the air.

  1. Muntjac make good eating but be careful with them with your garden - they can cause havoc in a single night. The American homesteaders had dogs not just to protect their flocks but to protect their gardens as well. It is nice to see the wildlife though, just so long as it doesn't eat anything you were planning on eating!
