You may have to enlarge the picture to see four of the Roe Deer who regularly fatten themselves on vegetables from Haddock's. Here they are, heading over for breakfast!
Frankly I'm a bit fed up with them; I had one in the sights of my rifle recently, but couldn't bring myself....
In spring things will change. My New Year resolution is to fence-in the whole veg' garden, and even wage war against the wretched bloody White Fly who seem to think they bloody own the bloody place.
So, death to White Fly, and Shove-Off deer. My patience has run out.
p.s. Over the Christmas holiday period, the lads from our local 'St Hubert' (the patron saint of gun-totin' scallywags) hunting club have been out in force. Dogs everywhere, shots ringing out by the dozen, and creatures racing off in all directions. Calm has now returned, and I've just spotted about 12 deer in exactly the same spot as in the picture above (which I took yesterday).... Overly smart animals.
