Rutting Red Deer

Bradgate Park

Event info

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 November will be at the end of the rutting season for the deer but the males will still be actively guarding their hareems. Given the right weather, even distant sightings can produce memorable images. There are normally Herons, Egrets and other water birds as well as smaller birds in the woodland areas. 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.
