We enjoyed an excellent day of photography and wildlife spectacular. All three species were easy to find and, at this time of year relatively easy to get close to, especially when using 500mm lenses. Other than the deer I was surprised to discover that we had excellent views of Ripon Cathedral a mile or so away in the valley below us; it made an interesting 500 shot. The chestnuts had obviously benefitted from a good summer and autumn as they were raining plump ripe fruits which we were able to collect to take home. It's not often that English chestnuts are worth collecting.
