Description:

I have seen deer at Spargrove before...in fact while extricating my boot from a ditch two small Roe disappeared across the field in front of me...these were not part of the group I had seen earlier at Lamyatt.
The tracks may or may not be theirs...the two displaying the dew claws looked too big for the petite pair I startled!

Roe deer

These are roe deer, note how the toe of the hoof curves inwards.
