My Mum loved deer, so when she came to stay for a holiday shortly after we moved to Lincolnshire, I drove past a large estate where there were hundreds of them grazing in the grounds. Sadly they were too far away for Mum to see, but it brings to mind an occasion before we moved away when we took her on an outing to a local gardens attraction where they had just introduced some sika deer.
We found the enclosure with no difficulty and she and I sat quietly on the benches provided whilst Hubby stood by the gate and waited. He has a lot of patience for wildlife and it wasn’t long before a small deer came out from the undergrowth. Its curiosity gradually got the better of it as it edged closer to where he was standing. My Mum was holding her breath with the excitement of a young child as she realised that he was going to be within touching distance of it. Animal and Man were separated by only a foot or so, but the moment was ruined by 2 women, totally oblivious to the magic taking place, walked into the enclosure from the other side. They slammed the gate shut behind them as they carried on with their loud conversation, and like the deer, the moment was gone. But, Mum was smiling as she’d got a close look at one, and that was what was most important.
