From time to time (especially during the recent snowfalls) I've described how we've been trying to make sure that the local bird and badger population are being fed. What I hadn't mentioned, however, is that birds and badgers aren't the only animals who visit us. In particular, we frequently see deer around and about the house - as demonstrated by these photos (below) which I took from our lounge window. The middle one was taken during last summer.
Aggravatingly (sod's law) I haven't been able to take a photograph of one during the recent snowfall. However, photographs of footprints (hoofprints?) provide evidence that they continue to visit; as can be seen in the other two photos - which can be enlarged by 'clicking' on them.
