Roe Deer

Friday, May 12th 2023

Jan and Andrew were heading slowly up towards the smalll hide on Spigot Mere.  Once settled they looked out over Spigot Mere.  Something caught Jan's eye to the left and it was a Roe Buck.  Andrew's quick reactions with his camera caught an amazing set of photos as it ran across the middle moor and over the fence onto the training area.  It is a Roe Buck and I suspect he is a young one, just beginning to lose his winter coat which is why he looks not quite the right colour.  They do not need words.

Thank you to Jan and Andrew for spotting the deer and taking these photos.
