One of the males resting at Dyrham Park getting his strength together for another go at the rut (he lost). One moment he almost looked asleep, the next he ran back to competition. I felt a bit sorry for him but no doubt his time will come.
I am told he is about 8 or 9 by the warden and he lost out to the dominant male and ended up being chased down the hill.
