Sometimes when I walk down into the woods I spot 3 to 5 deer. If I have dark jacket on it helps as they take longer to spot me. Nearest I have got to them is about 15-20 meters. |
I think there is a “lick” that they come for or maybe one of the various springs. The Harrogate area has a lot of these spring or wells and people used to come to “ take the waters”.
I have not been able to identify which deer they are as yet.
We are very very lucky to live in this property all the more so as the CRASH nearly caused to loss of the lot. However they didn’t have all their eggs in one basket so managed to get stable again but it took 3 years of graft.
One of their friends lost his company and nearly his home.
Nowt wrong with the company, they just called in his loan.
We do get another visitor on our patio who comes and
taps on the window. See pic.
Plenty birds, some kites. There is a fox but Only the son in law has seen it. Rabbits a lot.
The daughter and son in law bought this property in 2006 and have been modifying and updating it ever since.
We move in here after the barn conversion was totally modified, I thought it best for Ann if my cancer returned (it hasn’t).
The original reason for buying such a large property and land was for the two dogs. Kerry Blue’s one was 2.5 stone the other 3.5 stone. Plenty room to run around in. They both have died and replaced with Cocker poo’s. Great loving dogs.
For Alan the garages are for the 2 Land-rover Defenders of daughter and son in law both work horses. The 3rd is office com pottery room, store etc.
