The river lately seems to be lacking a little in wildlife, maybe its the middle months of the year, that the birds and mammals seem to take a holiday too, and leaves me working extra hard and ranging even further for something to photograph. One particular effort on a rare sunny evening was to silent stalk a Roe Doe and her fawn along the opposite side of the river bank, as they munched away on the surrounding plant life, I tried my best to keep as still and silent as possible, hoping to get them in a nice clear spot with the sunlight shining on them both. I did manage it after about half an hour, just starting to snap away when I here someone walking behind me, typically at that precise moment a dog walker is coming up the path behind me, I look back, Roe Deer gone! I have seen them both a couple of times since but only at a distance out in the water meadows.
