Wow!!! What an amazing couple of days 'out' I had last week, both very early starts, woke up at silly o’clock (3.30 am) well actually left the house at 4.30 am when my body bought up with my enthusiasm!
First morning spent on Exmoor, where I found these 3 stunning Red Deer Stags in full 'velvet' the images taken at 5.30 am, then I watched a beautiful Red Kite for about 20mins, next I drove round another corner and found an adult Great spotted woodpecker being mobbed by 3 very mature juveniles, that were eventually rewarded with food. They were so engrossed in what they were doing that they completely ignored my presents. Then I noticed this Exmoor Pony foal with a ‘perm’ got wet and gone curly. The icing on the cake for me was finding this gorgeous Red Deer calf, which was still a bit 'wobbly' on its legs. Mum was with it though so I kept my distance, managed to get some photos, but most importantly did not disturb them. I often see Red Deer calf’s at this time of year that appear to be alone, but they never are mum is never far away. Simply stunning weather, terrific wildlife, what a brilliant place Exmoor is!
Second morning, another ridiculously early start, but I was rewarded with these great views of a Little Bittern and its bigger cousin the Great Bittern - HAPPY DAYS!
