Do mind those antlers, Paddy!

Paddy mixes his ambitions and his abilities as he tries to stalk a herd of deer

The quality of photographs we have received for Our Lovely Essex has genuinely surprised us and today we share another special image, this time from Dianne and Howard Wood. They tell the story…

We were walking Paddy, our golden retriever, in Ongar Woods at around 6.30am and he spotted a herd of deer and started stalking them.
Luckily, he didn’t catch any!
