A visit to the extensive Bradgate Park near Leicester. "The Park offers a wild and rugged landscape with dramatic rocky outcrops and gnarled old oak trees, many of which are well over 500 years old. The landscape offers some of the finest views, and is rich in change throughout the seasons. The Park supports Red and Fallow deer, with a herd size of around 550 animals, of which three quarters are Fallow deer."
Our visit in October coincides with the rutting season for the deer and is a popular place for workshops by several eminent nature photographers. This is not intended to be a workshop though we hope to have sighting of the deer during the visit. Given the right weather, even distant sightings can produce memorable images. We hope also to get good autumn colours and find some fungi to add foreground interest.
The exact details of meeting time and place will be sent out nearer the time.
If all the places have been taken, please email me if you would be interested in a visit on the Sunday (25th) as I am in the area over the whole weekend and intend to make two visits.
