Out on the permission 2 weeks ago and saw 19 Roe, all out on the fields in groups of 5 or 6. It was cold and clear.
Out this morning and saw 4, all in standing maize cover crop. Nothing on the fields, didn't even find/bump anything out of anywhere else. Covered a lot of ground but saw no more. A greyer morning and 10 degrees warmer.
Talking to the keeper afterwards he mentioned that they spread nitrogen on all the fields earlier this week. Has anyone heard of this being responsible for pushing Roe off?
Saw 8 on the next door property in the middle of the fields. I doubt he had been spreading at the same time. Or am I barking up the wrong tree?
