During the past week or so this female deer has spent quite a bit of time resting in the meadow.
Mainly because she was heavily pregnant.
In the past couple of days she has had her kid. I caught a glimpse of them together this morning. No photos, as I’d rather not have a photo than disturb her.
Roe deer usually have twins, but sometimes one or even three kids. While I only saw one this morning, there might have been another hidden in the long grass, their dabbled coat helps to camouflage them.
The young are born from the middle of May to the middle of June and start to suckle within a few hours.
