Welcome to Wild In Britain, an occasional and irregular photo journal of my encounters with all types of wildlife in the British Isles. All species featured on the site are wild, and all photographs are the copyright of Ben Locke. For prints and licensing click here. Please also take a look at my main site BenLocke.co.uk
This Roe buck was photographed about three weeks ago in the Forest of Dean. The native Roe's numbers are locally small in comparison to the non-native Fallow and probably the Muntjac too. When this photo was taken the bluebells were unfortunately well past their best.
