Wild fallow deer in Little Brosna Callows

We took these nice shots of three fallow deer near Ashton’s Callow within the Little Brosna Callows SPA yesterday morning. The River Little Brosna Callows SPA is an internationally important site for wintering waterfowl, and in particular Greenland White-fronted Geese, which were there to monitor as part of on-going major bird surveys in the Irish midlands. Fallow deer are an introduced species, but are the most widespread species of deer in Ireland.
