Black headed Gulls resting. Part of a large flock of Black-heads at Bennerley most of which had heads tucked back and were sleeping. Amongst the flock were a few Common Gulls and 1 or 2 Lesser Black Backs. Teal dabbled at the edge of the flood pool.
Red Deer in the sun. The sun decided to show itself later in the afternoon so I visited Wollaton where the Red Deer stags were gathered around the sugar beet all laying down in the sun.
Red Deer studies. All the younger stags still have their antlers. The older males who shed their antlers a few weeks ago are beginning to grow new antlers already.
