Deer Species - The UK has six species of deer, these include the native Roe Deer and Red Deer. Fallow Deer have also been in the UK so long they are now very much considered to be part of the UK countryside. Other deer species introduced to the UK include Sika Deer, Chinese Water Deer and Muntjac Deer.
Each of the UK's deer species can be quite different in terms of appearance and behavioural characteristics, ranging from the diminutive Muntjac to large lowland Red deer. The spread and population of each deer species can also be quite specific to geographical location.
