Between Beinn Bhrec & Ben Reoch
Deer grazing, 50 yds ahead, I stop for a couple of snaps, they move off slowly, pausing. In front of me a fawn approaches to 20 yards, then stops & stares. I watch a moment then move to send it after the adults. 4 stags in velvet & 2 hinds.
Read: Hindsight: In Search of Lost Wilderness by Jenna Watt ★★★★☆ 📚
Stimulating investigation deer in Scotland, rewilding, green lairds and the like. Fitted well with the recent episode of Scotland outdoors. Female ecologists & stalkers. A first stalk by the author.

I’ve walked some of the ground discussed. The interaction of deer, trees & the habitat is way more complex than I thought. Really interesting half hour.
