The Terrible Twins?

Roe deer - Capreolus capreolusSitting at my computer this morning, two heads suddenly appeared at the window!

I slid down below the desk whilst trying to find my camera. I managed a few shots before they disappeared.

Roe deer - Capreolus capreolusThese roe deer are in the process of shedding their winter coats. Their fur seems very patchy with the ginger summer coat just showing through.

I have a feeling that these are the twins that were born last year. It is unusual to see a male and female together at this time of year.
