Richmond was treated to a beautiful Autumnal day yesterday. In Richmond Park the bikes were out in force, joggers jogged, ramblers rambled and red deer roared! The rut has begun and the stags are getting feisty. With a cityscape background, Richmond Park provides a green island in which both red and fallow deer flourish. It’s a real treat to see them, particularly at this time of year as large red stags clash to secure the attentions of the ladies (hinds). Here is a small album with pictures of Richmond Park’s red deer in the summer and early Autumn.
