Turkey Street, Enfield, outer London.
This blog gives me the opportunity to publish anything that I find interesting on my travels, whether related to skeptical issues or not. A couple of weeks ago (23/4/15) on a relatively small area of grass opposite an urban railway station I saw this lovely creature roaming wild. Turkey Street station is not far from Epping Forest, so presumably this is where the deer roams. A local person told me that she had been there the previous year but hadn't grown much since. I think this is because she is a fully grown female fallow deer, which don't get particularly large.
I was surprised at how comfortable she was with humans. She even allowed me to stroke her. I've never been this close to a wild deer before.The obviously has to forage for food. Here she found a lollipop in the grass and spent a number of minutes eating it. She seemed to be enjoying it, although I don't know how good it is for her.
