The buck stops here

12 Aug
Came across this fine roebuck on Snuff Mill Lane the other day.  It being the rutting time of year I suspect he was looking for female company but I didn’t see any around. Something I didn’t know was that roe deer became extinct in England in the 18th century  and those we have now are the result of reintroduction from Scotland. There’s lots of them about now thankfully and if this guy gets lucky there’ll be even more.

Roe, a deer …

26 Dec
Taking my usual constitutional walk yesterday I came across these Roe deer. I think they were surprised to see anyone out and about and they soon ran off but not before I managed these shots.
