Little lost Deer

Derek Earl caught a picture of this deer on the beach on his mobile phone. He spotted two small deer that were running towards Whitby. Derek took the photo as he was walking the dog at 6.20 in the morning.

“I’ve spotted them on the zig zag path before. I put my dog on the lead when I saw them. They spotted a jogger and that sent them back towards Sandsend. I think they may have come down the ravine or from Raithwaite. They may have lost their way or got spooked into crossing the road. It was so unusual to see, and it would have to be the one morning that I didn’t have my camera.” Send us your wildlife pictures to
