Tis the season to look for ideas for unusual Christmas gifts, for the person who seems to have everything. From stalking accessories, to books and DVDs, visit the BDS Online Shop to browse some ideal present ideas.
Or why not give the 'Gift of a BDS Membership' and help us protect the welfare of wild deer in the UK?
A video by BBC Midlands helps to highlight the issue of deer vehicle collisions at Cannock Chase in Staffordshire (over 160 deer road casualties per year recorded), and demonstrates a first UK trial of 'Deer-Deter' DD430 electronic devices aimed at helping to reduce the problem. These Austrian devices, used extensively in a number of EU countries, as well as 'down under', have blue and yellow light signals (as deer colour vision is best at that end of the spectrum) as well as variable sound signals.

BDS Member, Jochen Langbein, took the opportunity to do some night filming along this stretch of road. View video.
