Red and Fallow Deer at Bradgate Park Leicestershire

Red and Fallow Deer at Bradgate Park Leicestershire

Took a trip down to Bradgate Park in Leicestershire to see if we could spot some deer. I got the idea after watching a video review by Practical Photography of one of my lenses on Youtube. I fully expected as one often does, that the deer were nowhere to be seen and we had had a wasted journey, what a pleasant surprise, deer everywhere! Didn’t stay too long as it was very cold and the light was failing but we will definitely be back sometime in the next few weeks when hopefully it will have warmed up a bit! Having been and had a look around I will be better equipped on our next visit. All images using Nikon D3s and Sigma 150-600mm Sport.

They are quite timid though and keep a watchful eye on you
