Essex Walks – Epping Forest Fallow Deer Upshire Video
This was more of a gentle stroll rather than a proper walking route. We made the quick drive up to Epping Forest and parked the car in Upshire walking through the woods in to the fields that surround the area known as The Selvage near to Copped Hall. We then followed the deer tracks through the woodland until Copped Hall came in to view and then found a group of about twenty of the Epping Forest Fallow Deers.
I just managed to get a short video of the deer before they wandered off, mainly due to Tedi shouting at them but we did manage to get fairly close. I have done quite a few walks in the Upshire and Copped Hall area but today was more about seeing how far Tedi could walk so I can start planning more adventures for him in Epping Forest again soon. He was able to walk for at least an hour before I had to pick him up and carry him the rest of the way and he really enjoyed it, especially the muddy puddles and streams.
