Just managed to grab this quick photo before he scarpered into the woods. I'd glimpsed his back in the field of long grass that's to the right of the hedge in the photo below, so I scurried through to the lane and there he was.
He caught sight of me and the dogs so he didn't hang around, but he wasn't that disturbed that he couldn't pause to scratch the itch!
I am pretty sure it's the same buck I've seen before, though now they've shed their antlers its a bit more difficult to tell. Roll on August!
