Wild - Scotland - Grouse, Hares and Stags


Gordon Buchanan is up on the moors. He is hoping to film some of the animals that this landscape is managed for - grouse, hares and stags. Grouse blend in perfectly with the heather of the moor, seeing them is never easy. Being larger, the hares are easier to spot. At this time of year, mid summer, they appear a greyish shade of blue; hence their name - blue hares. Finally, red deer stags; large bachelor herds roam the moors, a truly spectacular site.
