Deer droppings

Most deer droppings are very similar, often it is the size which indicates which species. Being around 1cm indicates roe deer.
Around 2cm and shiny black = red deer
Around 1.5 - 2cm and brown = fallow deer
Around 1.5cm and round with a flattened end = sika deer.

These are roe deer.
