FALLOW DEER

Bird Watching (UK) - - Your Birding Month -

They may not be na­tive to our shores and they may of­ten in­habit man­i­cured park­land, but there is no deny­ing the fris­son en­gen­dered by watch­ing rut­ting Fallow Deer. The bucks’ testos­terone surges a few weeks later than that of Red Deer stags, mean­ing that you can move seam­lessly from one vis­ceral event to the next. An­tag­o­nis­tic in­ter­ac­tions fol­low a sim­i­lar pat­tern to Red Deer, which is bel­low­ing to demon­strate size, pos­tur­ing, par­al­lel walk­ing and then, if needs must, antler-equipped com­bat.
