Fallow deer in Bradgate Park

Fallow deer in Bradgate Park

A Milner/Jarvis family reunion midway between Yorkshire, Cheshire and London was planned for this Sunday lunch. Sue and Graham drove us there through an incredible tropical rain event (blown over from the US!), then we continued on to London with Ed and Nikki. Unfortunately Alan and Chris could not come because Alan was not well. However we had an excellent lunch in a busy pub chosen by Alan, then happened to find a large country park nearby, Bradgate, where we went for a bracing walk during a break in the weather. The walk took us alongsinde a large reservoir with lots of bird life, and to our surprise, we also saw dozens of fallow deer among the fern and bracken, most already with very fine antlers, which no doubt will grow even bigger for the rutting season in October.
