The records cover mainland Scotland.
Records of sightings are kept to establish the distribution, population and impacts of wild boar/feral pig in Scotland.
Records were received from multiple sources. The majority have been verified by by Andy Riches, although a few could not because of either the anonymous nature of the recorder or the time lapse since sighting - however, these reports are from areas and within the time-frame where the species is present.
Estates where boar are hunted for sport did not wish to be identified, so only approximate OS grid references are provided for these.
Records were made by Andy Riches, or submitted to him by various third parties reporting sightings, field signs or game bags.
