    I don't know (and I'm not 100% that it's Romford - just something I read...). However, that whole area of London is actually quite green - there's a reasonable amount of farmland, set aside and forest inside the M25 (as you can see below) as well as Epping Forest acting as a deer reservoir. You can pretty much always see deer somewhere by Junction 27 of the M25... Deer use the bridges over the M25 a lot as well - see some of the images from Jochen Langbein.

    Which side? Could be fallow if west or sika if east! Not sure if they're reds in that area but no doubt a local member could clarify.
