There's more deer in the UK now than there has been for the last 1 thousand years (apparently), I see them fairly regularly. Have even seen one running through the middle of Horsham. The BBC did a good program on deers in towns and cities a few years ago.

Deer can be a real road safety hazard
East Sussex County Council used to have a sign at the entrance to Ashdown Forest proclaiming the number of deer killed by cars during the past year.

Genuine call received by Sussex Police about 5 years ago:
Caller: Help. There's a bear loose in the A23.
Responder: Where are you sir?
Caller: pulled in at the side of the A23. There's a bear, and it's attacking my car.
Responder: Are you sure it's a bear, sir?
Caller: Of course it's a bear.. It's got these f****ing great antlers.
I had the story from one of the police responders in teh room at the time the call was received.

The sign just past Nutley is still there, 213 deer collisions in the last year apparently although it's said 213 for a while so not sure they update it any more. You do see them all over the place these days though, I've seen them in the fields alongside the Uckfield bypass in broad daylight.
If one jumps across the road in front of you it's always sensible to stop because there are likely to be more than one of them and you don't want to avoid the first only to smash your car into the second or third.

I saw a deer in the middle of Crawley. Common as muck. Now spotting a hare or a hedgehog - that's something special!

I agree, Newms does need to get out more. I regularly see Deer both on the Downs (Ashcombe Bottom being particularly good) and in the Cooksbridge / Chailey area. I saw a couple of Hares in a wheat field on the downs above Firle last week but haven't seen a hedgehog (apart from a dead one) for about 5 years. But just look up to the sky and see the Buzzards circling on the thermals - and to think, only 20 years ago you had to go to Devon or Cornwall to be sure of seeing one.
