Doorstep. Deer. David.

Posted on December 15, 2018


There are around one hundred Sika deer on Lundy. They are organised in family groups of ten to fifteen consisting of one stag (mature male) and the rest consisting of hinds and their offspring (calves). They are timid animals but on a small island they are easy to find and watch, especially in winter when there are less tourists and ground cover has died back. This is part of an ongoing project to photograph the deer on the doorstep at Tibbetts.
