How Rare are White Deer?
The British Deer Society regularly receives queries about white deer and how rare they might be.
In most cases, the white deer are usually fallow, a species that is widely distributed across much of the UK and for which white is a recognised colour variety. White fallow are not seen as often as the other three main colour types (common, menil and black), but where they are present they tend to stand out more obviously against other members of a herd or when in cover.
