The ramblings of a Manchester cyclist
Fantastic! There's supposed to be some not far from us along the railway & just as nervous as that one :>)
@ianI have just been informed by a colleague it is a Silka Deer and it certainly had a white round tail as the Google images show. I wouldn't know one from another but it was great to chance across. We saw each other at the same time. It looked up, probably heard my tyres on the snow, and I saw it as it raised it's head. The speed and quietness with which it made it's escape was just amazing.The video does it no justice at all but it was a great, unexpected encounter and I just wanted to share it.
