This week there's been great excitement at Lou Messugo, on the wildlife front. I came home one afternoon to be told by the guests in the gîte that they'd seen a deer in the garden - twice. They'd seen it on the lawn while having breakfast around 7 am (7 am on holiday!) and then again just minutes before I got home at 3 pm. In the five and a half years we've been here we've had numerous visitations by wild boar and plenty of foxes, but never deer.
