Just before sunrise on a warm and wind-less May morning a black-faced roebuck was about to cross the rhyne on to the salt marsh when he saw me walking along the sea wall.
He turned tail and ran into a small copse on the “Sanctuary” a safe area on the reserve with no public access. A few minutes later he emerged from the far side of the copse trailing behind a fox.
The pair paused and turned in unison to take a last look before trotting off into the reserve.
