Today’s Safari 2nd February

After weeks of adverse weather from dramatic floods to deep snow it was great to get out on a morning safari in early February with a bright clear blue sky and crisp day ahead.

The moor did not disappoint with a good show of the wild red deer all over moor, soon the hinds will be secluding themselves away from the rest of the herd to have their calves.

There were also a nice lot of native Exmoor ponies with their thick winter coats and long manes and tails blowing in the breeze, and the moorland sheep enjoying some well needed sun on their backs after a few hard weeks.

The weather had taken its toll, the devastation to the pollarded beech trees was significant throughout Cloutsham with many trees smashed in half by the weight of snow.
