Thread: Plenty of Reds near Thetford.

  1. #1

    Plenty of Reds near Thetford.

    I saw a very large group of Reds on a field south of the A1066 about 2 miles SE of Thetford at dusk yesterday (Shadwell Estate). Some nice looking heads amongst them.
    I estimated 150-200, my wife thought 200-250.

    Lovely to see.

    They have some cracking stags there as they don't take many big ones. Great to see big herds like that, hope some of them will have walked next door by the time I visit again shortly!

    I'm sure the farmer was thrilled to have that lot on his field.

    Do they farm it themselves or have a tenant on? I've known other occasions where an estate is more than happy to have plenty of deer or, the tenants who aren't allowed to touch them, less so.

    Does she always overestimate size?

    Back on track, I have done many early morning / late night trips along the A1066 (to / from Southwold via Halesworth for sea fishing) and the numbers of Reds I have seen seemed to be reducing.

    Nice to hear they are thriving in such numbers again.
    Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it, hump it or learn from it then piss on it and walk away.

    "HOSPITALITY" - the art of making guests feel at home (when you wish they were).

    About 26 years ago I worked near Brandon we drilled some boreholes for water to be used for the centre parks site when they built it
    in the 8 months I worked there we had access all over the estate which if I remember right was owned by the Guinness family ? And the deer numbers were huge with wild stags to be very proud of . It was a magical place to work and I spent many hours watching the deer there . Since then I have rarely been back to that area and was wondering if its still the magical place it once was ?
