Fallow deer, Forest ponies and fungi.

Fallow deer peep out of the gorse bushes to ensure that I won’t approach closer.
The New Forest Pony stallion Limekiln Endeavor is still out with his mares, but not for much longer. At the moment, they are only turned out for a month to reduce the amount of foals born each year. There are a number of benefits to this, one of them being to try to prevent them being sold for such a small price that they are sent overseas for meat.
In Ridley Wood, Oyster Fungi abound.

I'd love to hear from you...
