Not my finest work I will admit, but the light was fading pretty rapidly and having watched them for about an hour I thought when in a fairly open area I should try out a few shots.
My luck however changed on Friday, whilst called out with Dad to a suspected Poaching emergency, he has been having problems with trespassing Polish & Lithuanians fishing from the side of the A303. Turned out to be a false alarm, just some lads walking back through the village from the local Course fishing lakes.
However I did spot this beautiful Buck resting in the shade of the trees at the edge to one of the water-meadows, no more than 30yards from the road. Dad seems to think he is quite a veteran, and the size of his antlers helps back that up along with a bit of a slightly grizzled muzzle. Finally some decent Deer shots to be happy about.
