Muntjac damage

Some of the lettuces on the soil plots at North Moreton have been cropped down - 'Little Gem;', the upright cos type, rather than 'Tom Thumb' the miniature butterhead. It may be that the muntjac has a discerning palate and prefers the cos type, but more likely the taller lettuce are easier to graze for the muntjac's jaws.
