    Very interesting Tim, especially the presence of Muntjac -they must be great swimmers.

    Deer, including Muntjac are far better swimmers than many people realise, certainly the Solent is no great challenge to them as Sir John Oglander remarks:- see Swimming Deer

    Agreed but do you think their presence is the result of natural movement or Ifor Williams ? Have many ben shot ?

    The only knowledge that I have of this is that Muntjac have been photographed swimming off Portsmouth and around Newtown Creek, there is an NBN record of Muntjac there submitted by PTES.
    I haven't heard of any being shot.
