6 Deers Deer. Deer would not survive, they would be an easy target f or humans to kill. There are a lot of types of deer; for instance Chinese water deer [which didn't originate England - they came here from a zoo from which they escaped and started breeding in our very own Norfolk boards]. Muntjack, Roe deer, Red deer, Fallow Deer, Sika deer, are all common breed of deer.

7 How have they adapted. They have adapted to the landscape very well. Without the reeds bugs, insects, swans, ducks, bitterns, foxes, deer and loads more animals will just die out.

8 Reeds The Norfolk marshes wouldn't be marshes without reeds, they would be bogs! Reeds take up most of the marshes. If the Bitterns didnt have any reeds they would be easy prey for predators (foxes). Reeds provide how for a whole manor of birds, insects and deer.
