A walkover survey in 2007 identified a number of low artificial mounds which may be the remains of shooting butts. The mounds consist of excavated subsoils and gravels, as shown by material pushed to the surface by rabbit burrowing, and there is a corresponding slight hollow on the upper side. There are approximately 6 such mounds, some of them doubles, not arranged in a straight line as usual for grouse shooting. See associated photographs. <1>
