There I was having a quiet scratch, as one does, when this guy with a camera turns up!
But I soon spot him…..and then this cocky so and so came along to try and push we off my territory…
After a bit of a tussle he decided it wasn’t worth the effort, so after a bit of bluster off he went in search of some other fellas harem .
So as I keep saying…Don’t mess with me!….These Girls are all mine..
These Fallow Deer are only just starting to Rut, a good deal of noise and some fake charges but nothing serious…as for the females they are keeping well out of the way.
Last year our Deer Rut was very late well into November for the Red Deer and much later than Deer herds to the north and south of us . Don’t know why our Fallow and Reds are late to mate…..maybe they are just shy.
