Roe Deer

We've now moved south-west of Samur to spend the second week of our holiday at the little hamlet of Marigny, south of Thouars. I'm hoping to catch up with some of the wildlife here. On a walk alongside the local foret at dusk I was amazed at the number of small mammals rustling about in the undergrowth.
In the meantime, here is a video sequence of a pair of Roe Deer that Carole and I caught up with at Chinon Forest a few days ago. Being the height of the rutting season I had been hoping to catch up with some Red Deer but much of the forest had been shut off for that reason. I was really pleased to catch up with this pair, though, peering through the trees. The male had been lying down and stands up after a while.
