Deer prints?

I'm pretty sure these are deer prints, but just want to get a second opinion. They were taken in a wood on the outskirts of Sheffield, where it's not impossible a sheep may have wandered in.

Sorry for crappy photos!

For future reference, for ID a scale is useful. I generally put a plastic compact flash container in my print and poo pix to enable size judgements later (I also take one or two without for aesthetic shots, if you can have such a thing of such a subject).

Yeah I realised this after I'd taken the shots, I usually pop a pound coin or something on the ground but forgot in this instance.

With habitat and location my bet would have been roe, thanks for the input guys.
