Moody Monday….. The Peace will soon be Shattered


A Red Stag looking in prime condition, and for the moment, peacefully grazing the vegetation.  He will also be rubbing his antlers on the branches to scent mark his territory.

I say peacefully,  this time next month, if not sooner, he will be tilting his head back (like above) and sending a dramatic roar across his territory.  The roar is known as Bolving, once heard never forgotten.  It is the seasonal sign that the rutting season is upon us.


Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other

  1. What a fine sight. I happened upon a collection of short clips of the different sounds alpacas make yesterday. The rutting was described as a rusty trombone.
