Hello Matthew, Muntjac are widespread across the East of Somerset. I have seen many over the Years and they can be attracted to woodland bird feeders during v cold weather. I once saw one on Exmoor although the one we watched was just over the Border in Devon. Sometimes they can be seen out in the open but more often it’s a quick dart across a road. Best Wishes John
Thankyou for the info Rob.
I believe there are Muntjac present in the county. They have certainly been recorded in the Quantocks, albeit in low numbers. They may seem cute and cuddly but they are considered to be an invasive species and can do a lot of damage to plants, trees and crops!
Driving to work south of Sherbone there was a dead Muntjac deer that had been hit on the road,not sure how many of these are in the area but this was my first sighting of this species for Dorset.Do we have them in Somerset?.
