The deer rutting season in Killarney National Park will be the focus of an episode of a BBC wildlife programme that will be broadcast later this month.

Narrated by broadcasting and wildlife legend David Attenborough, the first episode of ‘Wild Isles’ will air at 7pm on Sunday night.

Filmed over three years, in various locations in Britain and Ireland, the five-part series is said to be the 96-year-old’s swansong.

The series will feature wildlife habitats in England, Scotland and Wales as well as Killarney and the Irish Atlantic coast.

A BBC film crew visited Killarney in October 2020 and recorded footage of the deer rut.

They used a specially adapted all-terrain vehicle that allowed them gain access to very remote parts of the Park without leaving a footprint.

The Killarney footage will appear in Episode Three while the coastal footage will be broadcast during the programme’s fifth week.

Attenborough has travelled the world recording wildlife documentaries but believes that the best of the animal is right on our doorsteps.

“With its astonishing scenery there are extraordinary animal dramas and wildlife spectacles to match anything I have seen on my global travels,” he said in reference to his latest series.

The documentary is set to use 4K technology to showcase the scenic nature of Ireland and the UK in a way that has never been seen before.
