Winter Wild Life.

Last year I happened to look out of the kitchen window and there was two cock pheasants sitting on the summerhouse roof. By the time I got the camera one had jumped down. It was lovely to see.

This little fox has been visiting for about the past four or five years. She is difficult to see in the winter unless there is snow on the ground, but in the summer evenings she is often seen just sitting with her tail wrapped around her waiting for food. One of our neighbours has been leaving food for her so she comes back most nights. I am surprised she has survived as many a night the fields are lit up with the lamps of people out shooting and hunting with dogs.

My garden last winter not sure when exactly but I think it was in December.

Not a good picture but here are a couple of Roe Deer in the field. My camera cant bring the pics any closer, again the deer have been seen around this time of year for a few years now. I am also worried about their safety as again the people with guns and dogs have been known to go after the deer too. Why? It is such a pleasure to look out of the window and have such a treat it really makes my day especially in the cold long dark days of wintertime.
