Over the last couple of days 8 Roe deer have been in the nearby field. Normally they can be found on their own or a mum with young, but this time of year the females gather together in groups.
They spend most of their time either grazing or lying down somewhere ruminating. (New word of the day!)
The first day they were easy to spot as they were out in the middle of the fields, but the second day they were right back against the hedge and I only noticed them because I walk this patch every day and I can tell if there is something out of the ordinary such as a slight different colour in the hedge row or grass line.
