Count is kids' stuff.
Wild goats have roamed the remote fells of the Upper North Tyne and Redesdale for centuries.
Now the Forestry Commission has joined Northumberland Wildlife Trust to undertake a major head count of the herd.
Each year a smaller census is carried out but this month 15 people, armed with two-way radios and other high tech devices, will be involved.
Forestry Commission ecologist Tom Dearnley said: "Tracking the animals can be difficult but at this time of year they have new kids, which means they are likely to stay put.
"Our efforts will be centred on the remote Kielderhead nature reserve."
