One road through the common is a bad bit of road for Roe deer deaths as it is a fast road and wooded right up to the edge on both sides. All too common a sight.

Deer signs?

Are there any deer road signs indicating that deer are around? It may slow some people down. Sadly however, I don't think such a sign would make a blind bit of difference to many.

No signs

No signs, but I honestly doubt it would make much difference, as you say. I shall suggest it, though, as there probably should be.

Sad that the deer has been killed

Sad that the deer has been killed, but the photos do show well the markings on the nose/lips.
