Deer Count Deer Groups

Last update: 2018-10-16


Point dataset showing the location of deer groups recorded on counting operations undertaken by or with assisstance from Scottish Natural Heritage (or the Deer Commission for Scotland as was). Count information can be obtained by joining table DEER_COUNT_INDEX based on COUNT_ID columns.Both Helicopter and ground counts are included in the data. The majority of the data were collected in "white ground" conditions where the contrast between deer and the background of snow is maximised enabling deer to be more easily spotted. Summer counts of "Priority" sites are also included where sites have been counted more intensively.
