Fallow

A wonderful fallow stag on the ‘Wild Ken Hill’ estate the other week. Even if he was a little lob-sided. Tours are available here https://wildkenhill.co.uk/

Acorn hoover

Another photography tour the other day. They are getting quite popular. We stood quietly under a tree and watched this female Fallow Deer. Unusually she forsook her young and made her way towards us. It took me a while to see why she was doing this. She was eating something off the ground under the oaks. Acorns must taste really good.

Laying Fallow

We watched the Fallow Deer the other week. Between the rutting this fawn was having a good old drink from his mum.

Rut

The Fallow Deer rut is well under way. The stags are full of high energy testosterone. This one was squaring up to another and pawing the ground in anger. He even donned some ceremonial headdress … or maybe he thought if he wore a few weeds we couldn’t see him?

Fallow

Herd animals are always difficult to photograph. They never look the same way! This little group of Fallow Deer sheltering from early spring sunshine and framed by the tree caught my attention.

Resting

This stag Fallow Deer was exhausted from the rut. He was sitting down and having a well earned rest.

A Bullet from a Gun

We were photographing Deer the other week when this little chap shot out from under our feet. We knew he was somewhere in the area as one of my guests had seen him amble behind trees earlier. As we continued to photograph the Deer he certainly managed to lay as flat as a sheet until we were almost on top of him when he sprang up and surprised us all. I managed to get this half reasonable shot of him as he sped for the nearest nettle patch.

A woodland surprise

.

Of the six species of deer in Norfolk (Red, Sitka, Fallow, Roe, Muntjac and Chinese Water) outside the parks it is the Fallow that is perhaps the scarcest. I don’t come across them often on the tours. It was a surprise then that on one of the tours last week a young Fallow buck stamped out onto the clearing in front of us. Wide eyed and leggy he didn’t know if he was supposed to flee or stand and face us. He wanted to stand up to us but he chose to walk the other way.

In a rut

On the Deer and Seal Photographic day last month we came across this Fallow Deer Stag resting under a Holm Oak. He was probably absolutely ‘cream crackered’ with rutting 24/7. We kept a reasonable distance; after all these are wild animals and should always be treated as such. We took our photos and then retreated to leave him well alone to continue his recovery.

Such magnificent animals.
