We’re working with landmanagers to remove and mark fences in capercaillie areas by providing funding and advisory support, so please get in touch.
Research shows that unmarked deer fences are a cause of mortality for woodland grouse and by marking them, collisions have been reduced by over 60%.
Funding is available through the Forest Grant Scheme for marking and removing fences within 1km of a lek. If the fence is over 1km from a lek, funding is available through our own grant scheme.
The fence map below includes records of over 850 fences, which have all been checked for accuracy with the respective landmanagers. If we’re missing fences on the land that you manage please let us know using the form below.
By keeping the map up to date, we can work more effectively to reduce fence collisions and mortalities.
