    First Kid This Year

    I was out for a Stalk early this morning when i caught sight of the head of a Roe Doe behind some brambles not 50 yards from me, i stopped and stood still waiting to see if she was accompanied by a Buck,she was feeding on some new shoots in the hedge row but she spotted me and took off across the field infront of me closely followed by a single this years Kid a bit early i thought but it was a few days old at that.

    I was watching a doe last night that looked like she was going to burst!!! mind you she has had triplets every year for the last three - helps add to my population

    Saw my first kid of this year, this morning, and a few days old, this is early for here, and I consider the first week in June the normal.

    Spent Fri am and pm stalking with Sussex Fallow on my ground, we saw lots of does many heavily pregnant and a couple of yearlings. Apart from a slim young doe all still in winter coats. Young doe was showing about 40% summer coat. To date I have never seen a newly born roe kid.
