    They are there for sure, can't comment on numbers, but probably more than you realise.

    Look for likely looking Muntjac motorways and check for very small slots,that should tell you if you have them on pieces of land or not.They always feel safer if there is plenty of cover or at least clumps of cover they can disappear into if need be,they are very good at not being seen.I have lots round here but you don't see them teeming all over the place.

    not seen any around Blagdon either, though Im sure there's the odd one around the Lake. seen them near Winford, Chew Magna and reports of them over Temple Cloud way too. With the habitat like it is around the Chew Valley, they are bound to be there just not in the numbers you get further east (yet!)
