I have had a report from a friend that a "white red deer" was recently seen in the Welsh Dee valley somewhere between Corwen and Wrexham. I don't know what sex the deer was nor whether it was alone or in the company of others.
I'm trying to tie the circumstances and location down a little more as there is a lot of territory between the two places quoted.
I'm obviously of the opinion that the deer was more likely a fallow than a red as clearly white deer of any other species are extremely rare and reds are almost unknown within 30 miles of this area. What intrigues me more is that the Dee valley is not an area with too many deer in it at all. There are some fallow, roe and muntjac but all are fairly thin on the ground.
There are quite a few white fallow in the Denbighshire population about 20 miles to the north and this is obviously the most likely source.
Does anyone have any other ideas on this?
