    Buck and doe out in the cover crop

    7 roe seen this morning, including this buck and doe browsing their way through last season's sunflower cover crop.

    This is the same field that was being frequented last season by the friendly doe.

    I was beginning to think that you'd dropped your camera!

    Lovely shots.

    Ha! Sadly a combination of travel for work, and some pretty miserable mornings when at home, have contrived to prevent me being out with the camera in favourable conditions. It was a beautiful morning this morning so I fancied the chance of seeing a deer or two.

    I was out on Sunday and bumped into the chap who stalks this ground, and both he and I commented that the deer had been pretty scarce recently. Hopefully the end of the game shooting season means a little less disturbance.

    Though I didn't see any deer when out on Sunday morning, this little chap came to the bird feeder in the garden:

    Nice photo's Dom, let's hope your friendly doe is still about this year, she provided some great photo opportunities.

    I was back at the same spot this morning and saw this doe:



    She might be the same one, but it was still too dark to see clearly and, like an idiot, I was in a rush to get to where I thought I'd see deer when I bumped her.



    Note to self - remember the first rule of stalking; deer are as likely to be where you are as where you're not.

    Hopefully I'll get the chance to see her close up in the coming days, so I can tell if she's the same doe as last year.
