Deer Spotting

On Wednesday a deer was spotted down the lane by my godsons and myself. I don’t know who was more thrilled – I think possibly me! This is only the second time I have ever seen a roe deer and it is the first time I have just stumbled upon a deer whilst walking down the lane.

The deer was a young roe deer who was walking through the field. Although we were some distance away we had a clear view of the deer and it had a clear view of us. Every once in a while the deer would stop and look in our direction. The deer had a beautiful red coat which is it’s Summer coat. Click on this link for more information about the roe deer.

I did not have my camera so I couldn’t take a photograph of this beautiful creature but check out the lovely deer photograph sent in by Sally from Sunk Island on the photograph competitions page.
