I was recently fishing on the Derbyshire Wye and am almost certain I saw red deer slots on both sides of the river in the wooded gorge just below Monsal Head. There were not many animals, possibly just two or three but one looked like a stag's slots. Can anyone confirm the presence of reds in this specific area?
They would have to be pretty tolerant of disturbance with the amount of walkers using the paths and they may well be largely nocturnal. I know that there are reds in the general area but did not know that they were in the Wye valley.
i also saw what looked like a single set of roe slots in the same area.
