Spotted you! Just as I was parking the car I saw two Deer just a couple of metres from me but annoyingly I wasn't quick enough to get a photo, but this time I was ready before she even noticed me.
Another cave, this one just near the Bowderstone Car Park, and it is one of the most eerie places I have ever been... It might have been because it was evening, but I had the definate feeling of someone watching me.
