Purbeck Fallow, originally uploaded by julian sawyer.
I was a little surprised to see this chap on the Isle of Purbeck. We have Sika and Roe deer but as far as I was aware, (and I am awaiting clarification) there were no Fallow deer! So, that begs the question; where has he come from? I know of a few private herds and, of course, the New Forest Fallow, but they really are miles away. I didn't have a lot of time to take this as the rain was falling, what light we had was quickly disappearing and he didn't really appreciate being interupted.
Interesting, I wonder where he comes from. I wonder how far dear will travel from area to another.
