Roe Deer and a Cuckoo

Roe Deer, Capreolus capreolus
On Friday I started at Rewell Wood where a Roe Deer crossed the path ahead of me and joined its partner in the wood. He had done this a few days before and by the time I had the camera in position he had gone. This time I was ready for him. Then I joined Neil, Mike and Paul at Harting Down for a successful Duke of Burgundy search. The butterfly is spreading out at this location which is very gratifying as it shows the conservation work is being done well. See Neil’s blog for more info: We heard the wonderful call of a cuckoo close by.
