How exciting is this? Following her having been spotted with a fawn during the winter, here’s Twiggy our orphan roe deer with apparently TWO fawns, a hind and a buck, grazing in Muncaster’s gardens. How fantastic, three years on from the tragedy of her mother’s death in a road accident and her birth by Caesarian section, plus all the trauma faced by Peter and Iona Frost Pennington of trying to raise a wild creature without domesticating her. Evidently they did a great job and we’re delighted to see that despite being hand-raised by humans, she’s living independently, found a wild mate and is raising her own kids on the Muncaster estate.
