Deer at Petworth
Ruttingseasonisinfullflow–and readershavebeensendinginlots of images from Petworth Park, capturing the autumn ritual.
Chris Hatton (pictures ), Judy Sheppard (picture ) and Angela Wright (picture ) sent us these stunning images taken in the park.
The National Trust – which owns Petworth Park – said on its website: “The deer rut is one of nature’s greatest scenes. Every autumn the young males or bucks compete in order to attract the most females by battling it out with their antlers.
“It’s certainly a sight to behold and one you can observe from a safe distance here at Petworth.
Huge thanks to Chris, Judy and Angela for sharing these pictures .
Send us your pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll share as many as we can.
