Photo-a-Day (Monday, 2nd December, 2013)
Good photo, looks frosty. Did you have your deerstalker hat on.
Nice one Mick. Do you think this is a younger deer, or is there a herd of "Small deer" around ??
This is lovely! How high is the fencing?--It makes the deer look small.
Nice one mick,just shows always have your camera ready
The fencing is next to the M6 motorway.
There was three of them you can see the M6 and see them walking about on the video.
Seen some deer in Crawford Wood Aspull and on the A6 early morning.

Hi Mick, good photo, seen some deer in fields adjacent to Mill Dam Wood. I went to the video and it says 'Sorry, video unavailale'. Please refer to my comment on your P a D yesterday.
Yesterday and today .Two fine picks.
Your photographs are getting better by the day.
I think this is a Muntjac deer they are only small
Roy yesterday s photo was taken on the track that comes from Church lane
Rudolph the red nose reindeer has very shinny nose...Rudolph the red nose reind...think I'd better stop.
Known as santa's 9th reindeer.
Well done Mick Bryne, a lovely Christmas photo. It would be ever better taken with snow.
They're Roe Deer. Hard to tell from this pic (other than the location) but easy identified on the video.
take your photos,but please do not give the loction of these deer for obvious reasons
That is beautiful Mick.
Good point Norman....shame when it gets to this though ,isnt it.?
Thanks Mick that track joins the one i thought you were on.
This is a Roe deer looks to be a female, no antlers and no male tackle to be seen. males loose their antlers during the winter and grow again late winter. Easy way to spot the female is by the white patch on its bum has a small short tail called a anal tush and no mens bits or antlers. Muntjac are smaller with canine teeth and a much thin sharp pointed head. I have seen fallow deer regular in the Appley bridge area along with Roe deer. Fantastic animals!
