This morning in the Brindabellas, a km or so over the crest at Picadilly Circus heading down to Brindabella - a deer ambled across the road, jumped up into the forest edge, and then paused for a photo opportunity.
Quick google shows a 2009 Gov report describing them as unconfirmed in the Brindabellas*, but elsewhere they are noted as a pest in Tumut shire.
What species are they? and are they now "common" in the Brindabellas?
