28 October 2014: Ashton Court, Bristol.

Took a sunny morning trip to Ashton Court again to check on the Red and Fallow deer along with my wife. On arrival, we saw only one Red Deer stag at anything like a reasonable distance.
Tye rest were tucked away in an inaccessible area. We were then treated to an overflight by a Common Buzzard and it was great to have some blue sky to snap it against.

 Not everyone was pleased to see it though(-:).
We then made our way round to the Fallow Deer park. They were nearer than our last visit and were busy feeding with several of the bigger  bucks strutting about but no standoffs or anything similar.

 Plenty of Magpies grooming the deer.

 This young buck wasn't tolerated though

THe other spot for the day were sevral Jay, who were busy stockpiling acorns for the winter.

 On our way back to the car park we noticed dozens of Ladybirds out in the sunshine.
