Greenwich Park again — Red Deer

Grnwch Park(1)A09A2488-001

Greenwich Park has a Red Deer enclosure in their south eastern

corner = closer to the back gate.

Grnwch Park(2)A09A2490

Unlike its northern part, closer to the Thames , where Royal Naval College,

Royal Observatory are attracting the numerous visitors, its southern part

maintains more natural environment = small pond, dense rhododendron

bush etc etc and naturally we can see many birds, even red deer.

Grnwch Park(3)562-001

Grnwch Park(4)A09A2515

South of the park is the Black Heath area.  Heath mean, the land covered by

the Heather plant. (Well, in the old days.)   Heather is a Elicaseae plant and a

cousin of Rhododendron ! (You believe or not  😀 ) ( Heath looks like this !)

And where ever a natural reserve and a pond, the Birds gathers.  —– and

where ever the Birds gathers, Human forks / Kids coming to feed them.  🙂

(It’s a well established custom of the modern society)

Grnwch Park(6)565-001

Not so many people thinks to make them a roast duck.  🙂

——– (Photos were taken by Tamron 500 mm SP F8 Mirror lens)

 I was really fascinated by (1) the quality of this 40 years old lens and

(2) how the birds can keep their feather dry !

So, the Red Deere here are not for Venison !

Grnwch Park(8)559-001

Photo above, left was a view of 15 mm lens and in its center, a

white-dot was a Wood Pigeon = photo Right, shot by 800 mm lens.

The building with clock tower is a very historic old School. (So, I heard )

Grnwch Park(10)A09A2606

Sound very dashing but looks pretty miserable building = Trident Hall.

Grnwch Park(11)A09A2614

This one is really the Pride of England or its past glory !

Old Royal Naval College.

    Nice shots. The ducks are beautiful. I’m surprised to see those red deer!

      Thank you Lemony.
      In fact Richmond Park got lots more Deer there though, I’m not a fanatic of those large animals.

    Enjoyed your wildlife. But Yoshizen, if the deers have no predators, and none will be venison, it would soon be too many??

      Thank you Bente. Situation seems the same in US,
      Japan and here. Even in a wild, thanks to the “Humain”
      attitude to those animals, they are becoming too many
      and a pest. —– So that, Yellowstone park in the US
      Re-introduced the Wolf. But in Japan or here, there seems no remedy.

    Great shots, but the nature shots really speak to me especially!

      Thank you Elena. This year, the nature here has been
      utterly dull and miserable. 😦
      I haven’t seen any typical winter, no frost or snow but
      just rain and yet more rain.
