Cotwall End Valley nature blog – October 2022

October 1

A very pleasant start to the month and a late morning walk along the lane and back.

The highlight was the muntjac, active and feeding in woodland.

It was showing well and I watched it until it noticed me.

I then moved on as I didn’t want to cause it to bolt.
