Good photo, looks frosty. Did you have your deerstalker hat on.


Comment by Ken R on 2nd December 2013 at 00:05
Nice one Mick. Do you think this is a younger deer, or is there a herd of "Small deer" around ??


Comment by Ellen on 2nd December 2013 at 02:06
This is lovely! How high is the fencing?--It makes the deer look small.


Comment by john on 2nd December 2013 at 07:10

Comment by Mick on 2nd December 2013 at 08:00
The fencing is next to the M6 motorway.

There was three of them you can see the M6 and see them walking about on the video.

Rudolph the red nose reindeer has very shinny nose...Rudolph the red nose reind...think I'd better stop.
Known as santa's 9th reindeer.
Well done Mick Bryne, a lovely Christmas photo. It would be ever better taken with snow.


Comment by Dave (Oy) on 2nd December 2013 at 17:02
They're Roe Deer. Hard to tell from this pic (other than the location) but easy identified on the video.


Comment by norman on 2nd December 2013 at 20:30

Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 2nd December 2013 at 21:36

Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 2nd December 2013 at 21:42
Good point Norman....shame when it gets to this though ,isnt it.?


Comment by Roy on 3rd December 2013 at 00:05
Thanks Mick that track joins the one i thought you were on.


Comment by Jonny Five on 16th January 2014 at 10:21
This is a Roe deer looks to be a female, no antlers and no male tackle to be seen. males loose their antlers during the winter and grow again late winter. Easy way to spot the female is by the white patch on its bum has a small short tail called a anal tush and no mens bits or antlers. Muntjac are smaller with canine teeth and a much thin sharp pointed head. I have seen fallow deer regular in the Appley bridge area along with Roe deer. Fantastic animals!
