Red and fallow deer were introduced into Richmond Park in 1637 by King Charles II who instated the park as a royal hunting ground. Today there are around 630 red and fallow deer that roam freely, and look how adorable they are!
Flash Back Friday to an exceptionally muddy trip to #richmondpark with @slinky_the_greyhound 🌳💚 Despite all the crossfit sprinting is not my strong suite. So a lot of caffeine is required when trying to keep up with the long doggos 🤣🏃🏼
The perfect place to take a peaceful lunchtime stroll 🚶♀️.
This could be your everyday routine if you live in this beautiful riverside town 🌳.
Get in touch with the team for details on any of our fantastic instructions! 🏡
Tbh I googled Bambi quotes for the purpose of this caption (even though I’ve seen the film a million times as a child)😂🙈...I kind of miss being an innocent, naive kid. There’s so much honesty and authenticity there that’s often lost with age and various responsibilities. Kids are not afraid to communicate how they feel and what they’re thinking. I digress, here are the quotes :) “Oh that’s alright. He can call me a flower if he wants to. I don’t mind”🌸 “If you can’t say something nice...then don’t say anything at all” 🦌 “Love is a song that never ends” 🎶 #london#deer#richmondpark#nofilter#safari#bambi#quotes#love
A few fallow deer (Dama dama) I photographed in Richmond Park over winter. The white spots which characterize the coat of fallow deer in the summer, are barely visible in the winter. Nevertheless, the black stripe down their tail forming a ‘111’ pattern is an identifying characteristic of the species 🦌
