Artist's Description

A quiet morning at Arne-Dorset RSPB Wildlife Park and the Sika Deer were quite content, a whole herd of them came so close I could have almost touched them, I was almost too worried about lifting the camera as any movement and they would have moved off, as it was this Male got my scent as one of the young fawns made its way towards me.
Autumnwatch will be here this month to film sika deer. These large mammals originally came from east Asia but escaped from deer parks in the 1860s and are now naturalised. They flourish in the old oak woods and heathland here and are particularly visible now, during the rut. Unlike red deer, sika males whistle rather than bellow their challenges as they fight over females.
