Travelling back from Torquay last night up the A380/A38 about 22:00 hrs and was amazed by the number of Roe Deer feeding on the grass verge right next to the main road. Mainly does with fawns which were about half the size of the doe's but these deer were over the barrier and standing with their buts on the road.
Trouble was it was really foggy and you couldn't see them until the last moment and with me driving an artic and pulling a forty foot trailer I am not sure if I missed all of them. It was not safe to stop on the hill because of the fog so I just continued. I did however phone 101 and advised them that they may want to check out the location for casualties. I continued seeing deer on the verge for several more miles and then these were replaced by hundreds of rabbits.
