Muntjac doe and fawn

The muntjac doe and her fawn are showing up often in front of the cam,the doe seems to be eating the brown leaves on the ground of the silver birch which i would of thought to be unpalatable.The acorns are dropping at the moment so many in fact that one nearly hit me on the head the other day.Also dropping are the early,smaller chesnuts and these proove to be a big draw for deer of all shapes and sizes which could be one reason for the increase of big cat activity in these type of wooded areas at this time of year.The oak trees are all over the place but the chesnuts are more locally defined and are more favoured by deer who will askew acorns for chesnuts if given the choice...........
