These red deer seem to be happily chatting away to jackdaws perched on them.  They appear very tolerant of the birds which clean them of bugs and ticks.<br />

Amateur wildlife photographer Stan Maddams captured the pictures after arriving at London's Bushy Park just after sunrise for the annual 'rut' - which takes place between September and November as stags lock antlers to win a mate.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
