However, as I navigated the muddy path along the north-west of the reserve, the sun broke through briefly and I though "all I need now is something to photograph". Almost as I thought it I looked up and there was a single muntjac deer watching me alertly by the path. It stood stock still whilst I shot off five photographs, and then it disappeared in the undergrowth.
I tried, discretely, to follow it - but it was long gone. I did find a well trodden deer track however, with hundreds of tiny foot prints - so I'm guessing they must be regular visitors there
