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 -

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!!!!

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.
