Deer. This reminds me of a similar sighting we made one night driving home. About 2 years ago, mid winter, snow on the ground and we were making our way home on Christmas Day (well Boxing Day actually as it was about 2 a.m.).
We’d just come off the motorway and were heading for Bothwell when by the side of the road, just after the roundabout, we spotted a Deer and her fawn. I quickly pulled over into a bus stop and we even managed to creep out of the car to get a better view. They stayed for 10 minutes or so, until another car zoomed past and they headed back of into the area of woodland behind them.
It was a beautiful sight, and to this day we still ‘check’ in case they return.
