Craig explained that there was a long run of about 600metres of fencing, wire and old posts, that needed removing at the Deer Sanctuary along East Drive near Caters Slack. A short run of the fencing had already been removed and new stock fencing fitted, so the deer could safely jump over the fencing to get onto Caters Slack, a large grassy area, which will be home to some Highland cattle and Aberdeen Angus cattle once all the new stock fencing has been fitted.
We squashed ourselves into a couple of cars and drove up to the deer sanctuary to start the work. We had been pre-warned to wear long trousers and tuck them into our socks and long sleeved tops, because it was tick season and, being near the deer sanctuary, it was advisable that we protected ourselves as much as possible!!
It was a lovely day(mainly) but, during the morning, we were aware of a large grey cloud coming our way!!
Thanks to Karin and Adrian for the photos.
