Deer Spotting

The Countryfile magazine ( has an excellent article and the above picture to help identify native deer. I have to admit I had never hear of a Water Deer or a Sika Deer. In North Northumberland we have plenty of Roe Deer and the Fallow Deer population is increasing. In both our woods the deer can be spotted and if you are quiet enough you can get close up, they are often in twos or threes.

Lovely to see these wild animals but sometimes the trees could do without being nibbled so much!
