A new survey has revealed how woefully ill-informed people are about the British countryside and its wildlife
Of the 3,000 people surveyed by hotel chain Travelodge, 22% could not identify a picture of a hare. One in 10 adults thought it was a deer.
A sorry 12% per cent of people identified a stag as a reindeer, and thought that reindeer were native to Britain.
Around 32% had difficulty picking out a pheasant, 42% didn't know what an otter looked like, and a whopping 83% were stumped by a picture of a common bluebell.
And most mind-boggling of them all one in 10 adults failed to correctly identify a sheep.
