At first I could only see three deer, the mature doe and two smaller animals, so I started to think that perhaps she had lost one, as these roe deer live in a very urban environment losing one to a traffic accident is a high possibility. However, upon closer inspection something didn't look right, one of them was a buck! It was at this point I finally clicked, this was a different roe deer family visiting, so that's a total of seven different deer I have seen and my girlfriend has also seen a lone animal which she was sure was a buck, so there is potential to be eight different animals in the area! I look forward to seeing the roe mature, especially the bucks as they start to develop their antlers in velvet.
Anyway enough talking, here are the pics! =)
