Red Deer Rut

24/10/2010
    Chasing red deer, last weekend in Richmond Park with my neice Kate and today in the more remote environment of Exmoor. Their russet coats look magnificent in autumn sun, especially set against Exmoor's golden bracken. Photographed a full range of rutting behaviour into the bargain. I didn't know that jackdaws have taken up a role as tick birds in Richmond Park - it's like an African safari!
