Muntjac +

Ditch camera collected again this morning with another week a nice surprise capturing a first female Muntjac deer. (1st male recorded in May). A small deer about the size of a larger fox, they were introduced into the UK at Woburn Park in Bedfordshire at the start of the 20th century. They soon spread and are common in some areas of the South.

Length: 77-91cm
Shoulder height: 45-52cm
Weight: 10-17kg
Average lifespan: 10-13 years

The rabbit gives a size comparison with the Muntjac deer .

Roebuck. As we approach the Roe deer rut the bucks are looking their best!
