Deer on Healey Nab

Yesterday on a long run over Winter Hill I took an unfamiliar path or two on the north face (as it were) of Healey Nab and finding myself on a track heading back down the side of the hill I turned right into the woods. The going was a bit slow and I looked up and saw two deer standing watching. As soon as I stopped one trotted off but the other, with new antlers, stayed just long enough for a photo.

It seems a pity to build a mountain bike track here but that is what is happening, perhaps though, it might help reduce the damage to the ground on Winter Hill and the Pike.
