Roe deer (Capreolus capreolus), Washbrook
One of two roe deer in the process of crossing a large pasture south of St Mary's church. Having spotted the photographer, this one is having a good look around before taking off up the hill where it is soon joined by its mate > LinkExternal link.

Roe deer are common and wide-spread. They can be found in woodlands but can commonly also be seen fields throughout Scotland and England except parts of Kent and the Midlands. Roe deer have been present since before the Mesolithic period (6000 to 10000 years ago). Forest clearance and over-hunting led to roe deer becoming extinct in England by 1800 but populations survived in wooded patches in Scotland. In England they were reintroducted again during Victorian times and their subsequent, natural spread aided by an increase in woodland and forest planting in the 20th century.
