14th April 2012: I have hoped to get a glimpse of the swam muntjac deer for a while now. I see their fresh tracks every time I am on the marsh. They can walk on last year’s brittle Himalayan balsam stalks without making a noise. They are very difficult to see, unless stumbled upon.
I set up a remote camera on Friday evening, at a point where two tracks crossed, in an attempt to see which animals used them. I expected images of a fox or a badger, but got an image of a muntjac deer.
When on my way home yesterday evening, I stumbled upon a couple of munjac deer walking along the water pipes. I know these are not good images, but beggars can’t be choosers!
