    Unexpected descovery

    Evening all,
    Been looking for a new home. From Cheshire to Devon. Strict criteria - the home assessment matrix (HAM).
    We walked a property today with 50 or so acres, land which had hardly been touched in the last 50 , maybe 75 years. We Walked down by the local river, within the plot, small but with trout and a few ponds which were overgrown but had lots of potential for wildlife. We walked into a marshy field and, apart from lady's smock, there were roe deer, a couple, you could clearly see where they had laid -up. Walked a bit further and saw a single roe doe. She was obviously startled by our presence but stayed within maybe 70 yds after whistling her. I suspected a fawn but within 10 yds, there was a 2 /3 days old youngster. Absolutely stunned by the land and the fawn and keen now to buy the land. House is a bit less than I hoped for but the fawn has convinced me. It is rare that nature is the final positive but this time feel I should go for it.
    Since the shooting rights run with the land, if successful, I will offer an opportunity for a youngster - when the land is in my ownership.
    I am forced to reappraise my view of things by a roe deer and her fawn - unexpected, but understood.

    You can change a house but you can never change the land it is sited on. Sounds lovely!

    I once read a quote in a book that said

    ''It's not the years in your life but the life in your years that count''

    Your spot sounds brilliant, enjoy it
    Next time you're walking down the street and see a homeless person go buy them a sandwich and a coffee, change of fate and it could be you one day !!!

    BUY BRITISH !!!!
