    Just spotted a Muntjac Deer in the undergrowth by the lake near where the Snake Head Flitillaries are flowering

  2. Dave – Many thanks for that report – I’ve seen the damage done by these deer but not the actual animals for a few years.

    Saw a muntjac in the Wilderness Friday evening – first time I’ve seen one on campus, despite working there for 30 years & regularly walking through Wilderness morning and evening

    I spotted a muntjac at dusk on the 19th November in the Wilderness near Agric.

  6. Muntjac sighting this morning “by the trees at the back of Whiteknights House this morning. It was about 8:00 and very quiet so I didn’t disturb it at all. ” by Louise Jones – thank you for emailing that in!
