29th Nov: SeaOsprey meets a Deer

A cold, clear, sunny morning so I motored up the river in SeaOsprey. Four of the black swan family at Saltmead. Then, just past the University boat compound on the way back, several of what I have been told are Roe deer on the wooded river bank. First time I’ve seen deer right in Southampton. Finally, while having lunch on the jetty, a kingfisher landed for a moment before seeing me and flying on.
