    Hi

    I have read and seen a natural science program that elephant (yes I know a completely different species) use low/very low frequency? sound to communicate over long distances.

    Why not a different species.......

    Cheers, L

    Heard a doe and fawns (March) stood under highseat that I was sat in, grunting to each other on the approach of a walker. it was a very low, gutteral noise

    In my experience Roe will slip off quietly or if settled they might watch until they get suspicious at which point they might give out a single low Boh! This is often followed by more, especially if they are significantly bothered. You know if they are beating a retreat when you hear Boh-Boh!, Boh!, Boh! fading into the distance. Different deer will of course have a differing pitch of bark so maybe yours was a big one? Can't say I've heard a belly rumble type noise and I've had plenty under high seats but maybe I will one day!

    Dorset is more chalky than Somerset. Maybe a Rennie/Settler effect on ruminations?

    No chalk where i am. They must be getting rennie imported. Whilst on the subject has anyone had a wild deer give themselves away with a fart?
