Autumn is here and it’s time to get those pumpkins ready for carving and build some bonfires! It is also a great time of the year to update our winter wardrobes and treat ourselves to things like these mens designer t shirts from https://www.ejmenswear.com/

Autumn is also a great time of the year to head out to the countryside and go on the look out for one of the best loved British mammals – the deer.

Here are some of the deer you may be lucky enough to see in Britain during the autumn months…

Muntjac Deer- With their distinctive ‘Barking’ noise you may be able to hear these lovely little deer before you see them! They are widely found all over the UK, usually in the woodlands, so you are in with a good chance of spotting one of these adorable creatures.

Red Deer – These beautiful deer can be found in the forests of England and parts of Scotland. They are the largest mammal in Britain, and the autumn is their breeding season so you may be lucky enough to witness the stags using their antlers to fight over the does.

Roe Deer – These are one of the more widely spread British deer and their numbers are high. They may be seen at any time of the day and they can be found both in forests as well as in the open fields and moor land.
