Just a quick update... the 2 fallow bucks, William and Norman, have locked antlers a couple of times over the weekend. They are still happy lying up close to each other so the full fallow rut has not started yet, but I am sure it will very soon and it promised to be pretty good this year with both bucks evenly matched.
Hopefully I will be able to provide you with pictures as and when it really gets going.
As for the Reds, they are slowing down now. It seems Eric has complete control and dominance of the herd and Alfie is happy on the outskirts. I am sure it will not be long until Eric has done his job and Alfie is slowly allowed to mix back in with the group.
