Spotted a pure white deer around black water creek

by Mike

Hello everyone, my wife and Hi, while out walking, came across a pure white deer in the Forest, at Blackwater Creek, least I think thats what its called there.

Is this a normal sight, or is it guite a rare one? It just stepped out and walked across the pathway.

It was quite a big deer, and it was a magical moment.

What a great experience! there are white deer within the New Forest UK National Park. They are usually Fallow deer which can range from nearly black to pure white. Check out my blog page - you will see a picture I took at Bolderwood which shows the variation. All the best and hope you continue to enjoy visits to the New Forest - Christina - newforest-life.com

White deer video
by: Howard

I have just taken a video on my phone of a single white deer within a herd of approximately 15.
Never seen one before and feel quite privileged to have seen it. A beautiful sight.

Well done Howard. They are stunning aren't they? Kind regards Christina

Just spotted 3 white deer amongst a herd, also near Blackwater reserve. Sadly only have a dodgy phone camera so couldn't capture it.

White male deer
by: Darren Lowe

Hi I spotted and took a picture (mobile) so not great of a white male deer today 4/1/21. Can I send it to anyone who would benefit from my findings or is it common??

Hi
Thanks for letting us know you spotted a white fallow deer today. They do seem to be getting much more common to see and virtually every herd I see has at least one usually pure white or slightly paler deer in. I always feel so sorry for them as they stick out from a long distance away! (just to let you know I don't publish email or phone numbers on my website so I've deleted yours. If you want to contact me then please feel free to use the contact link on every page).

Spotted a beautiful white deer in the new forest today. Stood watching us for a few seconds then disappeared. Wish I could have taken a photo but happened too quickly.

Just seen black deer in new forest
by: Anonymous

I have just spotted black deer adult and baby! On the edge of the New Forest!!
I have researched and heard they are rare!
Was shocked didn't realise black deer existed!!!!

Congratulations!
Did you take a photo? it would be lovely if we could all see it too? The New Forest deer, whether fallow or roe deer can really vary an awful lot - from pure white to black.
I hope you enjoyed your visit to this wonderful environment. The photo on my New Forest blog page shows some of the nearly white fallow deer.
