Vandalism ? - Oh deer !
At first I thought some lunatic with a knife had been attacking the apple trees in the old Northavon Council tree plantation in Filnore Woods. But closer examination revealed that it was deer who had been eating the bark. They really like apple tree bark. It's a pity about the trees, which may survive, but it's interesting to know that there are deer visiting the woods. Has anyone seen them there? If so, which species?
