    Wallaby spotted near Marlowe

    Just got off the phone to my son who assures me he just spotted a wallaby near Marlowe,he does not live in the area and was just passing througH.
    He is a country bred lad and knows his stuff,so is this a one off or are there plenty of wallabies in this area. I saw one years ago in Penshurst kent but not seen one since.

    I vaguely recall a story of wallabies escaping an enclosure some years back. Something about them digging under the fence as opposed to jumping it springs to mind.

    If at Marlow they will be escapies from Lord McAlpines place between Henley on Thames and Marlow, often see them out that way.

    I wouldnt say theres loads but always seems to be the odd one mooching about.

    There have been wild wallabies at large in the UK for some time, the main areas in which they can (or could) be found are Dunstable Downs, The Peak Districts and an island in Loch Lomond.
