      Surely one of the UK's most picturesque animal enclosures. Fantastic exhibit.

      Every enclosure at HWP, has a view to die for
    • MARK
      Is this the largest herd in the UK?

      What a shot and view!
    • Maguari
      I think it must be - possibly by some distance (this isn't even the whole herd, as I recall).

      Thank you Maguari, I may look at ISIS and see how many they maintain there
    • kiang
      I think the only comparable herds in the British isles would be at Whipsnade and Fota
    • Maguari
      Whipsnade's is quite a bit smaller than this - about 7 or 8 animals, from memory. Nice herd but nothing like Highland's.
    • MARK
      ISIS list HWP having 2 male & 12 females, it appears the largest herd in a zoo?.

      Howetts lists only 4 male & 2 females?. I am sure Howletts used to hold a larger group than this?.

      Whipsnade zoo lists 1 male & 4 females.

      Possibly, but that sounds correct for what I saw at the end of July.
    There are no comments to display.
