Muntjac

Note the black V on the forehead.

Cute is not the word for it!

I hope you left it well alone as the mother was probably watching your every move.

I's in our orchard, we kept an eye on it for a couple of days to make quite sure its mother was coming back as there had been a couple of fatalities on the nearby road.
suffice to say, this one ended in good news.

Under the brambles

I just get slugs under my brambles, not cute fawns! (At least slugs are good hedgehog food though.)
