Deer – Richmond Park

Deer - Richmond Park -m.joy

 

There is something about this park, that is worth long drive from home. On an autumn day its like a Lowry painting, with people walking dogs, jogging, cycling and flying kites among the gnarled old trees and views down to the Thames with London in the distance

We drove around the Park on a grey late November day hoping to see the deer – you are not allowed to stop your car except in a parking place, so this photo is taken on the move. We heard at this time of year they hide in the forest and think i would too, as this is when the deers are culled to bring the population down to a fairly impressive 660.

Bassenthwaite - m.joy

On this side of the lake in Dodd wood is an Osprey nest but by November they have flown away to Africa – didnt climb very high because im frightened of heights and was walking in wellys but this is the lower slope of Skiddaw, little under 1000 metres.
