Locally there are three wild deer species, the most numerous species being the fallow deer. These are a herding deer so can often be seen grazing in groups on crops near woodland. Fallow travel extensively across the local landscape depending on the farm crops, returning to the safety of woodland after feeding.
Roe deer are territorial, establishing themselves in a particular area that will provide safety and food. Roe are predominately a browsing deer, eating weeds, trees, plants and buds but will also eat farm crops.
Muntjac are a small invasive species of deer that are woodland browse specialists. This causes significant damage to wild flowers and tree saplings, plus their high reproductive rates can result in large local numbers.
Overall UK deer numbers are at an all time high and with no natural predators, this is becoming problematic. Aside from farming and forestry interests, the increasing amount of deer in the countryside and now in urban areas continues to cause more road traffic accidents.
