Baby Roe Deer


Update on the roe deer story: Sable's daughter, Kinder, has given birth to two fawns!

Here's the proud mother, above, looking across to me as her two fawns lay just beneath her.

At around midday, she moved away to feed in another field for a brief period and that's when I carefully went across to the spot where her fawns lay and took a couple of quick shots.

Here they are, resting in the small, flattened patch of grass, where their mother had recently fed them.

Seeing both fawns right next to each other is quite unusual; normally roe deer mothers like to hide their fawns a short distance apart, so predators, like foxes, are unlikely to find (and kill) them both in one visit.
