European roe deer (Capreolus capreolus)

We love our wildlife-friendly garden and are planning a big pond to make it even more attractive to all sorts of animals and insects, like dragonflies, amphibians, birds and small mammals like hedgehogs, weasels and stoats. We didn’t actually have the neighbourhood deer on our minds, until we found their tracks and droppings in our garden.

According to Wikipedia they feed on grass, leaves, berries, and young shoots. Not too alarming. Then I read the Dutch page. It lists most of my garden, including my veggie garden, my herbs, roses and tulips. Great.

Well, seems we are on the right track for a wildlife-friendly garden.
