The deer strip the bark to eat when browsing material is scarce.
A Good Days Work
A good day`s work at the tree nursery digging out last years Oak saplings for planting this winter, manuring the raised beds and planting the Oak saplings collected last week.
Also recorded a large Ash and a very old Holly on the boundary of the nursery which measured 2.44metres around the trunk near the base!
Berries were collected from this for planting before they are all eaten by the numerous Redwings, Fieldfares andMistle Thrushes seen.
