7pm. Great North Museum: Hancock.
Roe Deer are our smallest native deer and the most common deer species in the North East. This talk and debate will range from Roe Deer ecology, to Roe Deer management issues and regional population variances (and interlopers).
Ian Smailes is a local Chartered Surveyor who describes himself as an ‘amateur’ deer enthusiast. His former role as Trustee, Director and Chair of the North East Section of the British Deer Society perhaps makes him more of an ‘expert’? Ian remains active in providing advice to estates on deer management issues.
