In October 2012 I arranged for us to go and see the deer rut at RSBP Minsmere in Suffolk, we had visited Minsmere a few times before but never at the time of the deer rut.
On the day of the deer rut safari, I had woken everyone up for first light thinking we would have a lovely sunrise, I was very wrong, It was grey and overcast 🙁 .
After a few hours we went back to our cottage for the weekend and re fuelled ready for the deer safari in the afternoon.
Weather conditions brightened up a little and the rain stayed away. The safari was excellent we managed to get quite close to the patrolling stags and his harem of hinds.
