Deer population on the rise in Cornwall

Britons heading for Cornwall this year to revel in the county’s extraordinarily diverse wildlife will be delighted to hear the deer population in Cornwall has risen 10-fold in the past decade.

A popular sight for many walkers across the beautiful Cornish moorlands and coastal paths, herds of deer up to 20-strong have been reported far more frequently according to the British Deer Society’s South West branch.

Further research is being conducted and a population survey currently being carried out will be published in the summer.

The announcement comes after a series of promising sightings for wildlife lovers in the county. A killer whales was spotted off the coast in December last year, whilst bird migration to Cornwall was at its ‘best since 1960’s’ according to experts in late 2011.

Should you be staying in some luxury accommodation Cornwall offers this summer on your British holidays, be sure to take in the stunning natural habitat.
