From Ed Snell, Pine marten project officer
The camera trap site in the video below looked great from the start, as animals were clearly using a gap in an old wall, and we could see some very distinctive red deer hoof prints nearby.
Red deer are not such a common sight in North Yorkshire (at least compared to the much smaller roe!), so it was nice to get some clear clips of the UK’s largest land mammal – we’ve included a couple of familiar species at the end of the video just to give an idea of the size of the stags!
