Deer oh deer! Fawn causes a stir on Burnham-On-Sea housing estate

This timid, young deer has been fascinating residents on a Burnham-On-Sea housing estate this week after spending several evenings grazing on wasteland.

To the surprise of residents, the fawn has been seen several times at the landfill site off Wallace Wells Road, including on Wednesday evening (May 20th) when Lee Webber took these photos of the animal.

Lee told "He keeps coming out in the early evening and stands by the fence, but then quickly runs off whenever anyone comes towards him for a closer look."

"The animal is a wonderful sight and is not the kind of animal you'd usually expect to see on land like this."
