We have two species of deer here on the Isle of Purbeck the Sika and the Roe, we do not, as a rule, have Fallow Deer! A surprise then that I found two bucks quite happily roaming around just north of Corfe Castle. I have seen Fallow here before but they are by no means a regular visitor or a common sight. I tried to get close but they were having none of it, keeping a good distance between us and eventually disappearing across the fields. The photographs are not great but they show how difficult it was to focus through the undergrowth.

After a few days of not being able to get out with the camera it was a real pleasure to wander the rain-soaked pathways on a couple of beautiful, blue sky days. I didn't go too far, staying more or less within the boundary of Durlston Country Park but this gave me everything I needed. At least it would have done if the Kestrel had turned around...

It seems a long time ago now but on New Years Eve we wandered to Seacombe, one of the many cliff quarries we have along our stretch of the coast. The walk here is a good one whichever direction you choose to come from, this time we started and finished at Worth giving us a chance to have a pint and a pasty at The Square & Compass. The walk itself only takes a couple of hours and gives you plenty of time to explore the different levels of both quarries.
