Nature watch: deer



Drew the curtains this morning and saw this deer having a nice little lie down in the garden. The pic is the best I could do as it's not fully light yet. I wait to see if the beastie will move when I start crashing about. So far, it's taken no notice of me at all.

edit Oh dear, the poor thing has a bad leg and is only using three. Even so, fear gave it the strength to leap through the hedge into the field. I have enough things to worry about without adding injured deer to the list.

What a lovely thing to see in your garden but poor wee thing, I hope it's leg heals on it's own.
He was young and really pretty. I don't often see deer so close to the house for such a long time.

When he got up he gave himself a good shake, then started worrying at a hoof, so maybe that's the problem. I couldn't see any obvious injury to the leg.

Deer are a nuisance in the garden but I do hope he's all right. At least it's a dry, bright day to recover in. Bitter wind, though!
How lovely.
Lovely to be so close to a wild creature but I hope he's all right.
Oh, poor deer! I hope it's able to get better on its own.
He obviously managed to get away as the gardener was here the next day cutting the hedge and saw no sign of him in the field.

Next morning, two quite different deer mooching around, luckily unhurt ones.
