The PROVISIONAL CHECKLIST AND ACCOUNT OF THE MAMMALS OF THE LONDON BOROUGH OF BEXLEY has now been updated to version 3.

The revision includes several Hedgehog records for 2015, and Seal records and photographs from this year. There is an addition to the Borough list in the form of the credible sighting in Sidcup of a Muntjac deer. ‘Bexley Wildlife’ recently received from Joe Johnson a photograph lately taken by a contact of his of a deer in the Goldie Leigh hospital grounds, just over the border from Bexley, which looks as if it may be this species. This in turn gives some credence to a claim made that a deer had been seen in nearby Lesnes Abbey Woods in 2014.
