Protecting Your Harem.

Continuation from earlier post 'Relationships'
When I returned to the group of Red Deer the 'master' was fully awake and checking around to see that all his ladies were close at hand.
 Hearing a distant roar he decided to respond, first in one direction ....  
 ..... and then in the other.
 His constant barking was heard by a Doe that had become seperated from his harem.
She very quickly responded ......
by returning to her rightful place and then peace ensued until the next time.   FAB.

  13. Super pictures of the Red Deer. A neighbour of mine went house sitting on the edge of Kielder Forest and saw Red Deer in the adjacent field. I might pop over one day to see if I can kind them.

  17. Your recent posts are varied and interesting - like the jackdaws - the harem protection, the grebes, and the osprey - what a recovery they have made from egg collectors and DDT..

  20. Hi Chris P. Cheers, I'm doing my best to find some varied wildlife to post but the cameraman has been a little idle in the last few days!
    Always a delight to see species bouncing back from whatever.

    Thanks very much Kerri, Cindy and Joanna.
