Thread: Clocks change

  1. #1

    Clocks change

    Excuse my inexperience and potential ignorance but........when the clocks change,does it affect deer movement/behaviour/timings etc or do they only get affected by the daylight/darkness??

    It only has an effect on you its your timetable that has changed not the deer's they don't know the clocks been changed, will make a difference later in the year as the days become shorter but gradually not right away.

    Davie has a point though it may make a difference to him in an urban area, just that hour of difference and the change in the activity patterns of people and traffic, could have an effect on them.

    That explains a lot if ther'e normally out at 0700hrs and the clocks go forward then they don't seem to appear until 0800hrs and all this time I thought they were just having an extra hour in bed!
    LOL ha ha

    An old stalker I used to know firmly believed it did effect deer especially Roe in areas near roads. In the summer they have time to aclimitise to noise build up due to earlier daybreak and a steady increase in noise. In winter daylight bang instant noise. I believe there is substance in his thoughts.
