I agree with this identification, however, you have to be very careful as Woburn have some strange species and/or sub-species/varieties of deer, especially similar sika deer.

Thanks, I noticed that!

I do like to try for an ID, and am sure the kind experts will send me in the right direction if I am off the track.
