Today, I took my family on a guided tour of a local country estate where there is a deer sanctuary within and around the woodland. The site is of special scientific interest and is protected, but today was the last time for 12 months we could take a tractor driven trailer tour of the sanctuary with expert guides to show us the deer and inform us about them.
Attingham Estate is a truly beautiful place and the deer are somewhat used to the tractor, but still flee people on foot- good for them. Interestingly, the estate has to cull some deer each winter and then sells the meat in the shop. I must get me some of that Venison.
