Alternative Ashridge Walk

Today I did another of my favourite local walks, my ‘Alternative Ashridge Walk’ – you can see photos from when I did it another time in the ‘Chiltern Hills’ section of my website at

The morning started quite bright, but about 10am (when I’d been walking for half an hour) it clouded over and remained grey and overcast throughout the rest of the walk. It stayed warm though, 19-20C.

I saw a total of six groups of Fallow Deer, two of them in corn fields which was a bit unusual. The fifth group included some bucks with impressive antlers. I also saw a Muntjac deer – it was relatively untroubled by my presence, and if I’d not put my camera away in my rucksack I might have got a decent photo of it!
