Thread: Lincolnshire CWD ?

    Lincolnshire CWD ?

    I found this pic on another forum, the deer is on marshland.

    Hard to tell from the pic, which was obviously taken at distance, but it does look like a water deer, although it is further north than what I thought they had reached.

    Right habitat, looks like a CWD. Could be a one off or a genuine migration.

    CWD are living quite comfortably on the Gibralta Point nature reserve. Whilst I have not personally seen them there I have seen the photo of a dead one taken on the reserve shown to me by a chap who does pest control there and on the neighbouring land.

    The photo was taken in the same place so they are still there.

    I don't doubt it even dog walking is restricted to they are safe except from the odd poacher. The photo I was shown it was dead in a ditch. As they don't really have to wander far to reach roads or crop fields I don't know if it was wounded, shot of just a anatural death. He was going about his work to protect the ground nesting birds from depredation. I believe they have bait stations for the rats and tunnel traps for other round preditors like Stoat and Mink.
