By now the sun was shining and sky fully blue. A lovely walk around the edge of the wood and then around the newly ploughed and planted field. Lots of deer and SMILE you are on candid camera - signs warn that the area is under covert surveillance. Walked back through the woods - lots of evidence of hunting preparations but no pheasants at all - so I guess it is just deer here.M3WDD22/11/2015
