Deer Rut Season Pt 3 + Bonus Birds

Following on from my last post, I said I would bring you some Fallow Deer images.

Bradgate Park has two deers species - Red and Fallow. While the Red deer stags are mighty and noisy beasts, the Fallow bucks are much more delicate in looks, size and sounds. They still make a fair old noise but it is somewhat less impressive than the Reds.

They have wonderful markings too - much more 'Bambi' like in appearance so they tend to get the ahhh factor.

I also got a few bonus bird images and here are a few that caught my eye.

Crow Silhouette

Beautiful Mistle Thrush (large crop as it was a way away from me)

Cock Yellowhammer

I have not been successful with Yellowhammer much before as they are quite skittish. This one decided to plonk itself down in front of me for a change, so I got lucky.

I will be back next time with some Autumn colour of my own from Westonbirt Arboretum where the first four episodes of the BBC Autumnwatch programme was held, and I will be off now to get settled in for the next episode where they are now moving across Gloucestershire to WWT Slimbridge.

Have a great weekend wherever you are.
