Fortunately, I have a 2 metre fence round my garden. The enemy at the gates....
No interactions present.
I agree with the identification. The roe is a female from the picture with its distinctive white patch on the rump. I see the deer has its winter coat of grey on.
I think I can see small antlers, indicating that this is a male, but the photo is a bit fuzzy. Both genders have a white rump patch, but the female has a tail tuft at the base of the patch which I can't see here.

I have more pics of this one (taken at the same time) which show antlers clearly.
Please post more photos if you have time:-) Remember you can crop pictures to show particular features as well as having a photo of the whole animal.
Which show the antlers clearly. My neighbour calls this one 'Most wanted' because of the damage done to her flower pots. Somehow, the profile and full face mugshots seem rather appropriate.
You are totally right, i got mixed up. The male has the kidney shape patch on the rump, where as the female has a upside down heart on the bottom. As it has at antlers it defiantly is a male.
