Red Deer Stags.................................................................... Tatton Park Cheshire

I am just back from Tatton Park... watching the deer in the park.

Eyes bulging
This big stag had a large harem... and was seeing off any interlopers.

 I really thought it was going to kick off when these two squared up...

...but the stag on the left bottled it and made a hasty retreat.

This one was resting up on the hillside alone...

 ...roaring occasionally to let everyone know he was still around.

Further up the hill were younger stags...
...not quite big enough to take on the big fellers but still in hope of a female or two.

I'd love to see something so majestic on my hikes. Thanks for your help Andrew. I was able to do it as you suggested. Just a few more steps for the same end result. It just bugs me that something is not working the way it should though.

The big looks pretty scary. Best not to pick a fight with him.
