Another wet day, with an inch falling in total, the burns are running full, the fields are all awash with the water. No doubt, there may be quite a lot of loss of young birds that could have hatched such as ground nesting birds like Lapwings. Obviously some of the actual nests themselves could be flooded out.
As we came home this evening, there were 3 separate groups of Red Deer down off the hill ground into the in bye fields, one group had 11 deer, another 7 and the final group had 6. Needless to say, they all looked rather wet and bedraggled!
