A Deer in Market Lavington
Yesterday morning, our curator got up to see this out of his window, It is a roe deer.
Here he is. He spent time patrolling the boundary. This was a shame, since it meant our roebuck (yes, it was a male) had a wire fence in front of him.
But, eventually, he hopped over – and it was no problem to him at all.
At first he kept to the dark edges, taking an occasional nibble at shrubs. Then he broke for more open ground.
He walked up the garden path here, looking for tasty morsels which he found in a small rose bed.
That’s another image for our Market Lavington Museum wildlife book.
