Shatterford in the Sun
Today it was warm and bright and sunny. very different from yesterday. I had to go to the dentist this morning , so we started our walk a little later, and the carparks seemed quite busy. We walked for a couple of hours and only met one birdwatcher in all that time.
We took a slightly different path after we had crossed the first piece of bog and we were a little closer to the boggy places, however there were more little bridges over the boggiest bits and we found a small pond that we did not know about.
We watched a dragonfly for a while but he was too quick for the cameras.
Shortly after we entered the woods , we saw a small group of Fallow Deer watching us. All three dogs were on the lead at this point so we were able to watch without disturbing them
