Roe Deer are one of the two species of deer that are native to the UK. The other 4 have been introduced. They are generally solitary creatures but sometimes hang out in small groups of three or four.

They can be active at any time of day or night and when they are not feeding they rest in well vegetated areas, staying well hidden. They are more commonly seen at dawn or dusk, when they venture out of the cover of woodland to graze in more open fields.

Roe Deer are herbivorous and eat a wide variety of vegetation.
