Satellite technology has been used by scientists to study the behaviour of reindeers in the wild.

The movements of Santa’s helpers were recorded at the Cairngorm Reindeer Centre in Glenmore, near Aviemore, using a GPS fix attached to their collars.

Sixteen reindeers, including two families, were monitored every 10 minutes during the summer for two days a week.
