A Deer near Reading Town Centre

This morning I caught the 07:42 to London Waterloo, my earlier trains having been cancelled.  As we pulled out of Reading Station when I saw a small stocky deer (possibly a muntjac - it had a distinctive light brown V-shape mark on its face) in the scrubland by the railway embankment near Queen's House.  Now, I have seen photos of deer in a cemetery in Reading but I never really thought they would come so close to the town centre: this one was within 50 metres of the Forbury Road.
