Started feeding the deer at 6am to get done before the inch of rain we're supposed to get and found that one of my red stags has cast his antlers. Well whats left of them anyway because he was de-antlered last Sept.

I had been thinking that with the awful winter we have had they might be later. It is actually exactly the same date as the first stag last year but a different beast. The more I think I have learned about deer the less I actually know??: I usually write all these kind of things in the diary to compare year by year but never seem to draw any meaningful conclusions.
Probably just means I'm thick.

Hasn't started raining yet, hope they're wrong again!
