Unfortunately no photo, not even a fuzzy one. As we were walking through the churchyard this afternoon we came face to face with an animal. Unfortunately as soon as it spotted us it vanished before I could get the camera out of my pocket.
At first I thought - ah a Muntjac as it reminded me of some of the pictures I have seen. Looking up their description they appear to be not much bigger than Bobby but this seemed quite a bit larger. Colour brown with no markings. The puzzle was it appeared to have horns rather than antlers. Two unbranched horns about a foot in length, vertical and curving backwards slightly. Maybe it was a goat but it wasn't like any I have seen in the past. No sign of a beard either.
We went for a wander in the couple of the vdirections it could have gone but there was no sign of it and, unusually, Bobby didn't seem to pick up a scent.
