I'm hoping for a quieter night tonight, barking muntjacs kept waking me up last night. The garden's full of little trotty hoof prints and skid marks.

I really can't imagine what they were doing

Mehtinks it's not just the sap that's rising .

I might have muntjac babies.

..I get them near me... strange looking creatures.. but rather cute...  they kept me awake last year, so I expect the same shortly...

I had to look them up as I had no idea what they looked like. Agree with Salino they look a bit strange. Good to hear things have quietened off a bit Nut

They breed all year round and can mate again within a few days of giving birth so be warned, they will be back in October for more

September.  I'll be watching. I'd like one of those IR cameras to record what's around in the garden at night

06/03/2014 at 08:39

We're in March now Nut  Would the camera be to see the babies or to record them at it, would that not be like deer porn

I'm not going to admit to any form of perversion Tracey. This is a respectable household. 

I'd love to see the babies though.

when we left Nottingham a few years ago i commented on missing the wild deer that are well liked in the Midlands, a few more years on,, and on the actual day we arrived in Mundesley Norfolk we noticed a sign on the Cromer road ref deer and as we passed it a small strange looking deer came out from behind it as if it owned the road and just stare at us, our first intro to the Muntjac,wot a cracking looking animal,especially on somebody else's garden

When I was very little Ma and Pa farmed near to Woburn - we're talking about the early 1950s - the first escapee Muntjac used to come and eat the crops on the farm - the Duke was not terribly popular with the farming community around there - first the muntjac then the wallabies

I saw a roadkill wallaby on the side of the A14  down in Suffolk a few years ago - unmistakable - absolutely no doubt as to what it was.  They're on their way Alan
