Out for a walk this afternoon with my Labrador, this female Roe Deer came cantering up to within no more than a couple of metres. I've subsequently learnt that she had been seen in the area two days earlier with two very small fawns, I think she was escorting me and dog away from them. He sat quivering beside me while she was standing there looking at us. Fortunately, he obeyed his strict instructions to "stay"! When we moved away, she didn't follow but turned back towards some bushes which presumably hid her fawns.
Photographs, or even short video clips, are particularly welcome.
We look forward to hearing from you
