11 Nature Group members and friends visited Holkham Hall on the north Norfolk coast on Monday 17 October primarily to photograph the c.650 strong herd of Fallow Deer in Holkham’s fabulous estate. (Image left by Maurice Wright)



Holkham says that a visit to their estate will exceed all expectations, and they were spot on. The weather was glorious, and the deer provided lots of shot opportunities, including deer rutting. We had a nice lunch in the Courtyard Café, and everyone clearly enjoyed the visit. (Images right by Nick Bowman and Penny Reeves)




Whilst we had some of our “regulars” attending the outing we also had some new faces. The Nature Group has had a busy schedule of outings throughout 2022 and there are several more outings planned for the remainder of the year. (Images Fallow Stag and Dabchick by John Harvey; )
