I'm fairly new to all this, so bear with me... without a mentor I'm just trying to learn from the signs on the ground and hopefully you guys can share some of your knowledge:
Whilst out surveying my new land I've observed various bark stripping and damage to low levels of trees & ivy.
Most notably the damage is to ivy (leaves and stalks eaten/stripped) and also to willow (bark stripped) - pictures attached.
I know there are munties on the land, but if you look at the willow pic the damage reaches up nearly has high as my armpit which seems high for a munty (no?).
Also, would you associate these trees/plants with that of munties?
There are sheep in an adjoining field, but I don't believe they've ever had access to the areas photographed.
I've not seem roe on the land but that's not to say there aren't any around.
Many thanks for your help.
(if I've incorrectly identified my trees then )
