Deer Population
The principal deer species in the Group area are red deer. Sika deer are also present across much of the Group area whilst roe deer are generally found at lower elevations.

The last aerial red deer survey (2019) resulted in a count of 4,022 stags (male), and 8,149 hinds (female) and calves combined. This gives the Group an average population of 10.3 deer/sq km across the deer management area of 111,009 hectares.
