Oh deer me !

 It takes great skill and fieldcraft to get close to deer the stalkers tell you  I got this uncropped shot today with my bridge camera. Big waters was still home to Black necked grebe and 40+ Mute swans, Greylag Pink foot & Canada geese, Coot numbers up to 12 Pochard 20, & 2 Great crested grebe, 12+ Dabchicks. the woods held Willow tit 


The narrow clearing of reeds in front of the top hide was good for short glimpses of  4 Water rails 2 of them half grown, 1 an adult & the other an almost fully grown juv .
 Just in front of top hide BNG
This fawn was on the scrape
