Peak District a stronghold for mountain hares

Mountain hare densities in the Peak District could be five times higher than previous estimates, according to new findings.

The study, led by the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust (GWCT), utilised a new counting methodology developed in Scotland alongside the James Hutton Institute and NatureScot (formerly Scottish Natural Heritage). This is now considered the best practice standard to survey this iconic but nocturnal species.
