The red deer population on the whole peninsula are counted by helicopter

13 March 2018

In order to accurately know the population of the red deer over the whole peninsula, a helicopter count was undertaken. This is crucial data from which we can analyse against previous foot counts and carry out population modelling for the future.

With estates in our deer management group having varying objectives when it comes to deer management, having a clear picture of the deer population is the best basis from which informed discussions can take place.
