A Walk In The Park

Recently I made a couple of trips to Royal Studley Deer Park  near Ripon in North Yorks.I had received good reports of deer showing well and was keen to visit this new location.I was having difficulties with walking due to a form of rheumatism affecting my leg muscles but I was determined to get out and enjoy the Autumn sunshine.Kath came with me and on the second visit she visited the adjoining World Heritage Site of Fountains Abbey.

The parkland was fairly flat and I took my time and was able to approach some of the deer which were also enjoying the warm sunshine.Particularly on the second visit I was pleased with the images I obtained and at one point I used a hollowed out tree as a hide and enjoyed excellent views of the fallow deer which were busy with the fine bucks herding the hinds and youngsters around the park.It was a very enjoyable visit and the journey to Studley took us through some stunning Yorkshire Dales scenery.I have shown below a selection of the many images I took showing the red,sika and fallow deer which can be seen at Studley Royal.It is highly recommended for an excellent day out in splendid surroundings.Thanks for looking in and I hope to be back soon with more from my travels.
