I haven't seen deer around the house for ages. Then the other day two males visited the water butt for a drink.
It prompted me to set up the infra red camera to see if anyone else was visiting.
The deer come around several times a day and the camera captured a pecking order among them. A young male was on his way over to the water when he veered away. In comes a larger male with a bigger rack. They hang around together but the leader gets first dibs.
Then there is the pair of foxes. Round several times a night.
So there are raccoons around here. This is the first one I have ever seen. He's probably the one who was eating my cantaloupes. Grrh!! It's fun to see what wildlife shares this piece of land with us.
