    Hi mate, yeh there's some in south cumbria. Someone said that one was shot down east of windermere and north of staveley. The most recent distribution map of sika is this one that support there being a good population in the south of cumbria.

    The Bowland Sika do occasionally stray in to Cumbria and I saw a hind just north of K. Lonsdale last winter. The policy of the members of the North West DMG is to try and exlcude them spreading in to the county to protect the reds. As a native of Galloway and seeing what hybridisation has done there I hope we succeed!
