User's notes

It was late in the day, the skies overcast and there had been light rain when I walked the track along the northern shore of Wallagoot Lake. No other cars were in the Turingal carpark. Reaching the bird nesting sign I saw what I believed could be two female red deer. They quickly ran off when seeing me.

Hi Ross,
Fallow deer is more likely on distribution, but I will ask someone who knows their deer better than me to have a look. Pretty good photo so it should be identifiable. Jackie
