We were in Assynt and Deer numbers have definitely increased massively in recent years. Not only in the hills but we now see them regularly in gardens and on the sports field in Lochinver. Driving about up there during the winter is becoming extremely hazardous because of the number of them on the roads at night.

There is no shortage of deer on Exmoor at present - I saw a herd of 26 Red Deer with young only recently.  My neighbour, who culls deer from time to time, tells me the deer are suffering from over population and a lot of them have TB, which is a shame as my supply of free venison has dried up.[/size]

We will have to head back to Exmoor one day ninthace as we didnít see any deer on our Two Moors walk! Most probably because the last day was so foggy. We saw some ponies on the penultimate day but no deer  :(

You didn't declare it?  :o


Mai oui. However the man with the clipboard at Customs said it was not on his Tick List, so rien a declarer :D
