It's well known that there is a healthy population of sika East of the M74 in South West Scotland, but less so West of the motorway. . . Tonight on the way home from work I always have a look at a nice wee 'deery' corner just off the road, I regularly see roe in it.
This evening however my attention was drawn to what quite clearly wasn't a roe. I managed to reverse back and confirm without doubt that the deer was in fact a big old sika hind.
This was approximately twenty miles West of the M74, they are almost certainly heading cross country.
