A quiet afternoon

It was a quiet afternoon today at the bird feeding area.  Nothing beyond the usual suspects: blue tits, great tits, chaffinch, robin, bullfinch, dunnock and magpie.  As I was leaving about 5 pm, a couple told me they had just seen a deer head from the Tag Cut area towards the river up over the meadow.  I didn't get to see it, but they were quite excited with their sighting.  Is it usual to see a deer in this area of the reserve?

Dawn & dusk are not surprising times to see deer at CB, I've even had one run through feeding area around 10.00am one dull morning. There are more around than you think! & yes this area is a normal spot to see them when it's quiet.

Thanks for the info, Barry. Would it have been a fallow deer? The description was white rump and big!

It'll be a Roe Deer Ric, they're the ones usually seen around Calderdale

Thanks for the info, Dave. Maybe I'll get fortunate and see one at some point in the future.
