The past few weeks have seen a new visitor to the garden, a Muntjac deer. She seems to have made the garden part of her "patch". Most evenings, she turns up at about dusk, spending about 20 minutes browsing the grass around the ponds and nibbling the new tender lower leaves on the ornamental cherry tree and the oak. I am not be-grudging her the leaves and the lower snapped branches. Considering that on the other side of the fence, inches away, there is a very busy road with constant traffic, I'm happy to see any wildlife! I leave the grass and plants deliberately wild in that corner, we have two small ponds there, and considering how small they are, there is a amazing amount of life in and around them. We even had grass snakes last summer, looking for dinner, no doubt.
The pictures aren't terribly good, but it was almost dark, and the deer was at the far end of the camera's zoom lens ability (and mine!)
