    Roe kids afoot

    I had a call this am shooting buddy saw a roe kid this am near Tetbury he thought it looked only a couple of days old. Have noticed this week all roe does have vanished only bucks visible. Also looks like silage will start this weekend so there is the likelyhood of some unfortunate casualties.

    2 red deer calves here so far. Have to say I agree with casualties due to silaging; its well under way here in Devon. It can be very hard not to hit some roe kids even when you have seen the mother get up and leave the field.

    I saw the first Roe kid of the season this morning on my way into work in the South Lakes, only one with the Doe can only be a day or to old. Nice to see on the way into work even if it was stupid o'clock. :-)
