Hi all,
Brilliant, that is a fantastic sighting. There are plenty of Roe deer, often in quite <"urban situations">, but they are nocturnal and often people don't realise they are there.

All the Roses etc at work have two distinct browse lines, a low one which is the Muntjac deer and a higher one that is Roe deer.

cheers Darrel

Fantastic photos.

We occasionally get deer wondering into our front garden to eat the flowers. Next door neighbour got a shock when he opened his front door and just outside the door was a deer on its hind legs, reaching up to finish off the final one his £140 worth of hanging baskets !!! Not happy. :)

I've got a couple of shots of muntjac deer somewhere too. I haven't managed to catch the Kites or owls that visit yet

"Upon the roses it would feed

Until its lips ev’n seemed to bleed,

And then to me ’twould boldly trip

And print those roses on my lip.

But all its chief delight was still

On roses thus itself to fill,

And its pure virgin limbs to fold

In whitest sheets of lilies cold.

Had it liv’d long it would have been

Lilies without, roses within. "

This seemed appropriate. One of my favourite poems.

Wow your back yard looks so nice. I am jealous as a city dweller.

Nice Sarpijk...In case anyone is interested it's an extract from - The Nymph Complaining for the Death of her Fawn - by Andrew Marvel 1621-1678:)
