Today, two members of the Heart of Exmoor team joined up with The Exmoor Natural History Society and the Mid Devon Natural History Society for a morning deer walk on Dunkery Hill.

David Rolls,  Heart of Exmoor’s Education and Outreach Officer enjoyed the walk; “It was great to spend the morning with these two wonderful organisations and it was a really good opportunity to meet up and discuss plans and ideas for the New Ecologists project”. Download a leaflet about it here – the New Ecologists project.

Unfortunately low cloud meant that there were no deer sightings, although there were plenty of different fungi to examine! However, Aggz Waywell, Project Assistant, did manage to see a small herd of Red Deer two days before the walk on North Hill!
