I wasn’t anticipating making an entry today but surprises happen.

We were both woken at dawn this morning by a Muntjac deer barking not far from our open bedroom window. It gave one bark about every 3-5 seconds and the little blighter must have kept going for twenty minutes. For those of you who have not heard one it makes a sound which is a cross between a bark and a scream – a bit like the call of a dog fox.

I could quite happily have throttled it. :evil:

It did stop eventually but it was followed shortly after by a thunder storm. What do they say – ‘No rest for the wicked’ ?

The weather forecast for today is ‘Sun and Showers’. It is comfortably warm and we have just had breakfast in the garden.
