The Rut Is In Full Swing in Mid-Devon ... and it's waking me up!

Updated: Oct 11, 2023

For the last few nights, the deep roar of a rutting red deer stag has echoed through the valley in which I live. So far, I have only heard it at night but in previous years the stags have made their presence known throughout the day as well.

For the first time in the 33 years that I have lived here, the activity is behind my house and only a field or two away. Sleeping with the bedroom window open, it's close enough to wake me up - as was the case at 5.57am this morning when I made this recording!
