A Deer in the Churchyard

For a few days I could hear the sound of a chain saw coming from the area of the churchyard so we went walkabout in that direction. It looks as though some of the old trees shading the Church's East window had been trimmed to let more light through.

As we wandered through the churchyard a new item caught my eye:


Of course madam had to give it the once over:


Yes, it looks like a little wooden deer. What a lovely decoration to have next to the seat where people can rest after tending the graves:



At the other end of the seat there has also appeared a little wooden dog watching the deer:


In the past I have caught a fleeting glimpse of a real deer in the churchyard but had no chance to photograph it. Since then I have been on the lookout for another opportunity and now my wish has come true!

    1. Adrian: I am tempted to try some myself.

  2. The muntjac deer we are starting to see in town (literally!) are about the same size as that

    1. SDG: There are some around the adjoining village but haven't managed to spot one yet.

Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
