Witness the annual red deer rut on Westleton Heath this weekend (12th and 13th October 2013).

The red deer rut is a fascinating and loud spectacle, as stags battle it out for control of their harem of deer and their chosen hinds. The clashing of antlers, bellowing and fierce battle isn't for the faint-hearted though!
