Too early by a few weeks for antlers to fall but from a distance one of the nine stags here looked as if he might have jumped the gun. It only became obvious when the picture was carefully examined that he was an immature beast with rudimentary headgear.

The older stags are still finding their antlers of use. Either to show off a superb profile.

Or to while away the longer and milder afternoon with a friendly scrap.
