NatureScot Research Report 1204 - Ben Wyvis SAC/SSSI/NNR repeat herbivore impact assessment 2019
A repeat survey of herbivore impacts on Ben Wyvis Special Area for Conservation following a reduction in herbivore numbers (sheep and deer). Herbivore impacts have reduced over much of the site compared with previous surveys. Remaining impacts are largely due to deer and report highlights where more targeted culling may reduce impacts where still damaging. The survey results will be used by NatureScot and site managers to improve and maintain the site in good condition by targeting culls of red deer.
