Photos not Brilliant, but a Record Anyway

Diary of Natural Environment In and Around Wimpole

There’s not been a lot of excitement about and the photos are poorish but worth publishing as a record of whats been around over Christmas and New Year.

I’ll start off with the photo of the fleeting Fallow Deer, I’ve not seen many about and this is probably in direct relation to the number of people I’ve seen stalking them on neighbouring estates. I know they have to be controlled due to the forestry and crop damage they cause, but it would be sad not to see any around. You can see hundreds in Richmond Park but its not quite the same as seeing them roaming loose in the local countryside.

About Sadeik

You may ask why "Sadeik" well it means friend in arabic. Worked in Jordan a lot doing tree surgery you see. I have worked in forestry since I left school with a two years in Telecom. Went back to forestry and tree surgery as it may not have paid as much but was far more interesting and dangerous. Spent a lot of years mountaineering, caving and canoeing too. At 29 I went to Bangor University to study Forestry and soil science then did an MSc in Water engineering all very interesting. By a quirk of fate in 1995 ended up helping sort out the woodland and park at Wimpole, funny thing was then I only intended to stay six months or so, but 18 years later I'm still here learning all the time. That's the best bit, if I wasn't able to learn something new every year I would not have stayed and as you get older you realise that the grass is not so green in the next field after all. In fact my patch is getting greener while much of the rest is getting browner.
