Termic camera to spot thar/chammy?

I have a Pulsar Quantum QX50. It stretches out to 1800m.

Would it be any good to spot Tahr with it, over on the west-coast?
Thought to scan opposite scrub faces.

Has anyone tried it?

Should be fine. You will probably see the head as the brightest bit, like sheep, because the wollen coat is such good insulation.

Youll still have to carry a good pair of binos though because the more distant animals still have to be identified and youll want more detail than a thermal can offer.

Have been looking at Fallow Bucks last week and the brightest thing is the velvet/headgear... Outstanding and the wierdest thing.
