  1. I can't stop thinking of "Monarch of the Glen". Beautiful animals. Unfortunately for them they are also good to eat!

    1. I doubt whether they would eat the prize stag, Mark - all his females were expecting babies!

    1. It was strange, Jessica, to be concentrating on taking a photo and to feel an nudge on my arm from one of the does.

  3. Lovely photos of wonderful creatures. We have many of them here but I'm still amazed by them every time I spy one.
    Happy New Year!

    1. When we stayed in a cottage by Loch Ness we had roe deer in the garden, Linda.

  4. Stunning photographs Sue, such beautiful animals. I'd not heard of Wentworth Castle before but would definitely visit if I thought I could see this.

  5. Wentworth castle is only 20 mins away from us by car bit we had never been before. Martyn posted about our visit
    on his blog here As he put we were lucky as unknown to us they feed the deer from Monday 23rd December - Wednesday 1st January 1:00 pm - 1:15 pm and we just happened to be there at the right time. You can wander through the deer park at other times but I don;t think you would get as close.

  7. Beautiful animals, and how lovely to be able to get so close to them and to be the only people around. Sounds like you had a wonderful time there.

    1. We were very lucky Elaine. It was maybe a one off experience.

  9. Very regal. But wild - best not to get too close, as demonstrated by the tragic accident recently when a woman was charged by a stag.

    1. We weren't too close to the stag, Linda. The does really came close to us rather than us approaching them and we were protected by a wire fence. We could go into the park after the deer had been fed and then they were further away. The people already in the park had to keep their distance.

    1. And so unexpected, Snowbird, WE wondered why they were carrying big sacks down to the paddock gate so just arrived at exactly the right time.

  14. Oh, I really enjoyed this post. On our trip to Denmark I was infatuated with trying to see some of their deer. I did get to see the little guys from afar. I love the photos. Do they run wild or are they only on preserves?

    1. These animals live in enclosed parkland, Bonnie, But deer do live wild in the UK too, Red deer. Red deer appear in larger numbers in the highlands of Scotland and in other areas of GB there are a few.
      The smaller fallow deer are more wider distribute in England and wales but there are less in Scotland.
