I am a regular visitor to Dunham Massey country park, but on most occasions I am unable to fully appreciate the numerous wildlife as I usually have my four year old grandson in tow. Any parent or grandparent will tell you that in such situations you need eyes in the back of you head to keep track of where inquisitive and fearless grandchildren often disappear to.
However, last Sunday I took myself off to an early morning visit to the park alone, just accompanied by my camera with the intention of walking around the grounds to take in the lovely scenery and the range of wild life.
The bird life I encountered included Swans, Teal, Mallards, Moorhens, Canada Geese, and Black Headed Seagulls. I also heard a number of Woodpeckers in the distance but did not catch sight of them.
I also encountered a very large herd of Deer, who at one point decided to cross the path en mass in a lengthy “wagon train.” Most of these were young Deer as the older ones just stayed put on one side of the path with disdainful and haughty looks on their faces.
Below are just some of the photos I took of the wildlife I encountered.
