Another young Roe deer, which should help to keep the small Purbeck herd going. I always get a buzz when I see these, even though I manage to catch a glimpse most days. There were two here today and that made a rather soggy walk a lot more enjoyable.

This morning's walk was grey with a wind that whipped up the sea into a churning field of white horses. Skies were grey and what Sun the...
For me there are fewer more wonderful creatures than snakes and on the Isle of Purbeck we are lucky enough to have all three of the UK's...
Walking along the cliffs in thick fog is different! All the parts that make up a usual wander are changed but not necessarily for the worst...
