I was a bit late with my yearly visit to Knowle Park, and weather-wise, chilly and misty. I picked the worse day of this week. I didn't expect it to be very busy, but I was wrong. Pam and I went to restaurant before I went for a stroll to see what was around. I did see plenty of female Fallow Deer, but most of them was quite a way off.After a short time, as I was walking near the road a stag crossed the road a little way down from me, and it was not in much of a hurry, it went into a clearing and settled down in a dip which is surrounded by about 8 tree's. I slowly crept up to it keeping a tree between me and him. The pictures in this post are not that good, I seem to be having problems with settings, I played about with them to get a few photo's, plus apart from that the old arthritis in my fingers doesn't help with steadiness.
The stag seemed to be very happy where it was, and it didn't seem too bothered with me being around. I took plenty of pictures moving around the tree's trying to get one from different angles,
When I was finally back I came across a couple of old tree stumps, so I decided to take a picture of them
