As of February 2016, after 416 posts, and over six and a half years of blogging, I'm taking a break.
I've explained why here. There's plenty of past posts to read, though - hope you enjoy them !

Is this deer snot ?


Yesterday me and my dad were walking in a deer wood and we found this on one of the tracks in two different places, both where the track was next to a stream. It looked like jelly and one lot had a leaf inside it. Around it were a deer's tracks, maybe of a young red or a old roe (this wood has both roe and red deer).

Because it had a leaf inside it, we think it came from an animal that eats leaves. If it came out of an animal's tummy, it must be a big animal. So we think it's from a deer, maybe a poorly one, and maybe it's snot or sick.
