Morning Glory

posted in: Local Attractions, Nature | 0

Took an early morning walk in the grounds of Castle La Ducrie yesterday morning and (ably assisted by the dogs) spooked one of these magnificent chaps.

In point of fact, the dogs took no interest whatsoever; Lottie, the hyperactive Border Collie was far too focused on chasing her stick, and Labrador Ghost is old and wise enough to know his limitations!

None-the-less, the roebuck took off at lightening speed, leaping clean over a Bocage hedge line at least 8ft high, and disappeared into the misty murk of the morning before I could remember which pocket my camera was in.

All in all, an inspiring start to the day.
