As the seasons change, so does the behaviour of the deer in Bushy Park. The cow-like moos you can hear near the mostly park after dark herald the start of the rutting season and the competition for mating rights. Take extra care to not get too near them at this time of year especially when males are locking horns (or about to!).
Photos, early start & description by Max Ellis: “Got an early start to make the most of the lovely foggy morning and soon ran into Willy (with the wonky horn) here. I’ve followed his progress all year and was glad to see he’s survived the cull this far. I’ve seen this behaviour of actually licking the hinds before and presume he’s checking if they are in heat. Doesn’t make it any less comedic.”
