two roe deer on bewick moor
No interactions present.
there are a long way off, but the white rump and longish necks are unmistabeable for roe deers
It is difficult to be certain with the animals such a long way off, especially as other deer species have a pale rump patch, but am agreeing on basis of the shape of the buck's (the animal at the back) antlers.

I can not be sure which species this is, it could be red or roe deer; both are found in the area. Normally I would agree with Gill about the antlers but at this time of year red deer are growing their new antlers so can look short and single pointed. Also many roe have lost their antlers following the main rutting season (April/May); but some do still have theirs; therefore, I can not be sure.
