What a difference a day makes in the weather! These were taken Tuesday and yesterday midday. I’m sure that when stags are in velvet they seem less concerned about people, as all of these were taken very close to the houses. Beautiful to watch.Pauline Richards, 20 May 2021
Roll on Spring/Summer, when stags are in velvet, bees are abundant and the sound of skylarks singing warms the heart…Rosemary Barnes, 15 February 2021
“So I looked out of the kitchen window and saw a lovely sunrise plus some hinds on the hill. As I had finally got around to buying a tripod, which arrived yesterday, I thought great, I’ll photograph those. Something made me look right and yippee! The stags had decided to pay me a visit! They hung around for an hour despite me letting my dogs out and we then watched them nonchalantly jump into our bracken bank before sauntering off into our woods. It’s not often you get to photograph deer whilst still in pj’s ( it was a bit nippy!) from outside the kitchen!”
