ROE DEER TWINS
May is when we would expect to get our first sighting of roe deer fawns, often it is when they have been left alone in a field by the mother during the day. The mother only returns to them in the early evening / night, so as not to draw attention to them - you never know what predator might be watching. For what ever reason, this mother was not concerned about moving her twins across an open pea field in the middle of the day. It was a very hot day and it is possible she was trying to get them to water. As the pictures show, she was quite nervous and then suddenly a buck joins them. No way of telling if the buck was the father.
