Red Deer spotted near Carmenellis

Special Guests At Little White Alice

An award winning Cornish eco retreat hosted a very special guest this month, after an impressive red stag visited the holiday complex.

Little White Alice, situated in Carnmenellis near Stithians, has been visited by the deer frequently since the beginning of October and, thanks to some keen photographers staying with them this autumn, managed to capture some excellent close ups.

The impressive stag was not the only deer to visit the ground as it brought with it a herd of females and young.

The red deer is the fourth-largest of its species behind moose, elk and sambar deer and, although they are most widely found in Scotland, populations around the UK have been on the increase over the last 10 years.

Typically, a fully grown stag can weigh between 90 - 190kg and grow to reach 1.07 - 1.37 metres in height - deer which inhabit woodland areas tend to grow to be larger than those found in open areas.

Rosie Hadden, owner of Little White Alice, was thrilled with the unexpected visitor.

"Preserving and protecting our surrounding wildlife is really important to us at Little White Alice. Our award winning wildlife sustainability projects are one of the unique draws to those taking a holiday here. Alongside our alpacas, horses, sheep, chickens, pigs, bees, cats and resident dog, we hope our guests will enjoy this addition to our menagerie by observing and admiring this magnificent sight."

The visits prompted Rosie to call for passionate photographers to come to the holiday park and try to capture some wonderful images of the special guests - particularly if they have good zoom lenses, in order to keep disturbance to a minimum.

The response was fantastic and there were many excellent images produced by the photographers who wanted to preserve their memories of the herd's visit to Little White Alice.

One of these was Sue Hosking who was delighted with the images she managed to capture, saying:

"I was thrilled to be able to photograph the stunning deer during my stay at Little White Alice. We had been out looking for the deer every evening and on our last night they appeared. They were a couple of fields away and it was dusk but I managed to get some photos. It was the perfect end to our holiday."

Rosie continued:

"We are really pleased that these beautiful creatures have chosen Little White Alice as a place to spend their time and we are delighted that observing them was a real highlight for our guests without disruption to the animals. Not many holiday complexes can say that a wild animal can comfortably and peacefully graze in its grounds! "
