Fieldsports Britain – Scottish Deer on the Line

What’s the deer’s biggest enemy in the Highlands of Scotland? Man? Wolves? No – it’s the steam engine. In the first in his new series, A Year in the Life of Highland Sport, deer manager Niall Rowantree explains why the ‘Jacobite’ steam train is driving out deer from the Highlands and what can be done about it. Plus, meet Dr Cathy Mayne, ecologist and deerstalker, who helps with the science at Ardnamurchan. Back in the South of England, Roy Lupton tears himself away from his birds of prey to deal with foxes taking lambs. He is using thermal and lamp. There’s Hunting YouTube and David is on the News Stump in this week’s #FieldsportsBritain
