A beautiful little roe doe spotted in the reserve and photographed by Ian Bushell, who messaged:
A real bonus! At the top of Village Green set-aside, near the seat, I suddenly realised this young Roe deer doe was nestled down in the long grass. I had intended continuing on the butterfly transect but I did not want to disturb her so I just took these pics and retreated carefully away.
Roe deer are regular early-morning visitors to the the reserve.
