The results of the survey are now complete and are available in map form offering an overview of deer presence across the UK at the present time, along with a comparison with the 2011 and 2007 surveys.
This has been a major effort involving many people, and many thanks must go to everyone, not least the BDS members, external providers of deer records and GWCT mapping team who contributed to compiling and sorting the information. The final distribution maps have already been displayed at the 2017 Game Fair and Countryfile Live, and more details will be published in the Autumn 2017 edition of Deer.
In the meantime they can be viewed on the BDS website. 19.9.17
