Apparently there has been a daily feeding of the deer at Attingham Park recently.  I didn’t notice this activity when I visited last weekend, I did however still get to see the deer close up.

  1. That is a pleasing sight. I bet the deer are happy too!

      It was quite an amazing surprise. I wasn’t going to go into the deer park. I went to the weir and pool and I just got an urge to just venture on the first leg of the deer park walk!

    You didn’t get to ride one then?

    Beautiful sight! I hope they’re happy, and have lots of space to wander about.

    Beautiful shot! The herd sure looks well fed and healthy. :)

    What a lovely photo and it looks as if they live in a very nice spot as well as getting a daily feeding!

    Happy weekend to you Cherie.

    A glimpse of these shy creatures is delightful but I would not visit a park where souvenir joints of venison are available for a later gastronomical encounter.

    Wow what an amazing and beautiful sight!

  9. Wow! Look at all of them!

    Deer are an almost daily nuisance around here. They eat everything in my gardens, even stuff the experts say repel deer!

    I played, too. :)

      These are mostly contained within the park although I have on one occasion seen one of them running along the road in front of me one night. It then disapeared into someone’s garden.

    They are lovely aren’t they……and nice to see the snow on the Wrekin behind. I have a similar one where it looks almost blue. Why do people feel the need to walk up? The same happened on the day I went, some parents let their children go running up…
    sad for everyone and the animals that want to eat their carrots in peace ;) I struggle to understand the mentality because then either leave or just move further back.
    I think they do have vension for sale but they have so many, I think that they would have to cull them otherwise they would become a problem. There are hundreds of them!

    • CherryPie says:

      I have no idea why people do silly things like walk right up to the animals. It just spoiled it for everyone else especially the ones who had only just got there and were still trying to take photos.

    Ah at last: the Wrekin ;-) ! Gorgeous shot of the deer. Grew up near a place where fallow deer roamed wild and haven’t seen any of the breed for years, so this is a treat: thank you.

  13. That’s neat that they feed the dear daily like that. Very pretty. Sorry I’m a day late getting to your post, but great take on the theme.

    Ohhh… this one is magical :-) . I love the way the light falls, and how the deer are silhouetted against the horizon.
