Deer and owls and freezing cold hands !
This afternoon me and Dad decided to go to a place called Papercourt meadow in Ripley as there had been reports of owls . So we set off and after passing a small piece of traffic we arrived near the River Wey were we followed it up to were the owls were meant to be. We followed the river and I almost walked straight past a trio of roe deer who where staring straight at me. I stopped still and they carried on grazing  I then photographed them for a good 20 minutes with Dad trailing behind me. They eventually moved off into the scrub. Walking further up we came across more deer I tried to crawl close to one, getting my knees covered in cold wet mud, but he sensed my presence and bounded away. That’s nature photography for you. We then headed back and saw a photographer who was in camo and had a bazooka of a lens. He was looking through his bins, I presumed he was looking for the owls. Heading back my left hand gradually began to freeze in it’s position and then Dad spotted a barn owl who stayed for a short moment before moving off. I then saw another,this is defiantly a place to go back to . I hope to return with a bigger lens and more importantly GLOVES !!!
