Common buzzard Buteo buteo is very common and common raven Corvus corax is spreading. Peter Carne, Swan Hill Press,

    While on a zoology field meeting this week I came across the spoor of a female leopard, and near by the remains of another two sika deer, one was eaten under a lone pine, and the other was on top of a cliff under a gorse bush. Here, the deer park designed by Capability Brown has a splendid population of fallow used both to establish new deer parks and to improve existing bloodlines in many different countries. The same scat contained other cat hairs but were jet black. The north of England is noted for our native deer species. There are several small yet noticeable differences when the two species are viewed together. These areas are full of strange goings on regarding the phenomenon.
