    Caught in the hedgerow

    On the way down the normal track this morning, turned the corner and caught these three roe out snacking on the hedgerow for breakfast:



    Can just see the summer coat starting to come through around the extremities.

    The dogs clearly spooked them so they ran back across the field, doing the normal roe thing of stopping 50 yards away:



    Having decided I was less of a threat than I first appeared they then happily continued browsing, though keeping one eye on me just in case:

    They keep a number of these fields for hay meadows. Give it another few weeks and the roe will almost disappear in them. The by-product is a fantastic population of butterflies and other insects.

    Dom,
    We'll be expecting some more quality photos later in the year then.

    Sadly yes.

    Today looks like a cracking morning to be out with rifle or camera, but instead of that I've got to be at Heathrow
