Last night we saw a lovely young 6 point roe buck in the finest of condition, lovely summer coat and a realy great tall head which looked medal class to me, we watched him for a good 10 mins in lovely sunlight at 120 yds.
Later on we came across another buck and doe. We pulled into a gateway and watched them at 60 yds oblivious to us and the passing female runner in her pink lycra.
This appeared to be a much older buck with a smaller but much thicker darker set of antlers(again could well of been a medal head) and his danglies were very pronounced, prehaps that what the pretty little young doe was intrested in. Anyway this old fellow was still moulting and a fair percentage of his coat was grey quite a contrast to the young buck we saw earlier.
Steve was well impressed but sadly both were off limits as the later was on the wrong side of the road, typical however it was pleasing to see two such contrasting animals.
Seems a very strange year: also this am I saw from the train probably 15 yards away a lovely doe with two very well grown kids which were months old, yet last week in the locality a mate came across a roe kid still in spots which was less than a week old, go figure that.
