A very recent walk around the ponds in Bushy Park produced some encounters with a few of the resident Red Deer. These two quietly trotted along the side of the pond and came quite close to where we were sitting.
A little while later we spotted one of the mature males feeding in the shade of a tree ...... he eventually walked out into the sunshine and allowed me to get reasonably close!
Totally unfazed by the presence of the many visitors he eventually wandered off to lie down and disappeared amongst the high ferns. FAB.
