Description:

Current conditions make for many clear deer prints.
I frequently see Roe deer in this area. I saw a buck yesterday afternoon and although I was only a few feet away, by the time I had my camera out it was long gone.

Roe deer

The soggy slope clearly meant the deer was trying to stop itself sliding, hence the splayed toes. Note the way the front tips of the toes curl inwards, indicating roe deer. Also the size.
