I've just seen a Muntjac deer in my garden. It was absolutely beautiful!
It just stood, for what seemed like a long time, but was probably only fifteen to twenty seconds, looking right back at me. My Westie saw it too, and amazingly, it seemed to stun her into silence, I wish that happened more often :lol:

    Oh how lovely :D

    I'm not good on deer species but we, and a medium-sized one, all had narrow escapes when it shot out of some bushes in front of our car on a quiet Scottish road. It missed us / we missed it by seconds as it leapt straight over the road and into more bushes.

    Oh wonderful, my sister has them inspecting her garden in Cambridge and when she lived in Bath (our home town) Roedeer used to use her garden as a meeting place, I have a lovely picture of one eating the fallen apples.

    My mum had Muntjac as regular visitors and I clearly remember seeing one wandering in the greenery between the Waitrose car park and the station in Beaconsfield (where mum lived, but not in the car park :wink: ). DD
