For those of you who are interested the first day of the Breckland deer group calf tagging days was held yesterday. In total 8 calves were found, with 6 being tagged. 2 were not tagged as they were fresh born and there is a chance the hind will reject them at this age.
One ear is tagged with a large orange cattle tag which identifies the deer as the bdg area. In the other ear is a small orange tag and a small blue tag which identifies the calf as tagged in 2012.
