Stag party

Evening time along the Ober water below Markway Bridge is a popular watering spot for woodland animals; the banks of this narrow section of waterway, recently remodelled, though deep in places currently running shallow over its gravel beds, frequently sees scores of Deer, Ponies, Cows, all manner of birds and occasionally Foxes. Tonight was no exception. The introduction of a dog soon cleared the banks of Deer sending them scurrying for cover, leaving Ponies and Cows unperturbed to graze and drink alone. On a nearby rise two medium sized Stags watched on, weary of the potential predator, yet holding their ground; they watched as we followed the stream.
