A student of photography has been capturing images of the wonderful wildlife around Durrington cemetery.

Fred Bell, who is from Worthing, is a 57 year old student. His latest assignment is photojournalism, and he decided to photograph the deer he sees while walking through Durrington cemetery.

Fred said: “Boundaried by the busy A24, A27 and residential housing, the cemetery, at Offington roundabout, is a place of remembrance and reflection. The grounds are quiet considering its proximity to the busy Worthing roads. The only visitors here are generally those visiting past relatives or friends. People walking by with their dogs or just coming here to sit and take in the peace and quiet. Here you can just sit and watch the world go by, you will be joined by rabbits, squirrels, wood peckers and other local birds. But what you probably wouldn’t expect to see are deer.

“There are at least six deer living in this location, natures lawnmowers you could say. Quietly going about their business. I have no idea how they got here or how long they have been here but it brings a smile to see them. Generally seen at the earlier hours or evening hours when the grounds are quieter they move around the cemetery grazing. Its hard to believe that within such a close proximity to the hussle and bussle of Worthing these guys carry on their days without a care in the world.”
