Roe deer (Capreolus capreolus), at Shorefield

This pair of Roe appear to be spending a lot of time in the Shorefiled at the moment.  You can see that the buck's antlers are still in 'velvet'.  The light was poor but they paused briefly for a portrait before presenting me with a characteristic view of their white rumps bouncing away.  The white rump is a quick way of telling Roe from Red deer - Red rumps are beige... if you see what I mean...
