This young Roe Deer was spotted just outside our office the other morning. You can just make out a few pale, white spots above the back leg, the last remains of its baby markings. When young Roe Deer are first born they rely on camouflage and lying very still to protect themselves, but this older fawn had definitely found its legs, judging by the speed it ran off at when it noticed it was being watched!
