Red deer on the Rhinns

We encountered the usual group of red deer close to the road between Heatherfield and An Gleann while returning from Portnahaven tonight. Difficult to see how many there were but we have often seen up to 20 animals. It would be interesting to know just how many reds are on the Rhinns now. I regularly see the An Gleann group who seem to be quite resident, but last Thursday there were fourteen hinds feeding close to the house at Octomore. I also have reports of a group of thirty plus that are regular at Cladville. Does anyone know of other groups?
