I've seen a lot more of late, especially in rural areas just a few miles from a large town or city.

During the first lockdown , one wandered by the roundabout at the bottom of Granville Road.

A couple of months ago myself and a work colleague tried (and sadly failed) to save an injured Doe in one of the car parks of the NGH.

Seen a few deer in the woods at Norton Lees and on Newfield School fields.

There have always been deer (red deer I think) that have visited Rivelin, Redmires, Ringinglow  and the surrounding areas 

etc, but I can't remember seeing them as often, or in such large a herd as this year.

 

I've seen them quite regularly during the summer in particular around Lady Cannings,  numbering 8 or 10 in the group, including more than one stag

Reintroduce wolves of course!

Eat them. The income can then be used to manage a healthy breeding herd and maintain their habitat.
