Is this a deer hoof print?

Observed: 19th February 2012 By: lorenzor

After hearing that someone had seen a deer(no information on species) in Hopwas Hayes Woods in South Staffordshire I resolved to find evidence while on a walk in the woods. All I came up with this photo of what could be deer hoof print(arrow pointing out print). Any help with identification would be fantastic. Hopwas Hayes Woods is an ancient woodland that is under threat from quarrying and is an important ecological 'island'. There's been no deer from what I know in Hopwas for over 100 years so any confirmation of deer would be a revelation. There are reports of seeing Muntjac deer in nearby Fisherwick Wood.
