Brian Wawro announces the first fawn of the year in his neighbourhood. ‘This little gaffer was born in our backyard in Uplands last night (June6) and is full of life this morning,’ writes Wawro. ‘Mom and dad are protective to say the least so it’s in good hands. I hope everyone slows down as these little ones navigate their way around the neighborhood.’ (Brian Wawro photo)
