Fallow Deer

INTRODUCTION

Fallow deer are an introduced common species throughout most of Europe. They are a grazing animal of woodland and open grassland. The male is a buck, female a doe and the young are fawns.

Only bucks have antlers, these are broad and shovel shaped and like most deer species these are shed each year. Our herd love to hide in the forest but will often come out and sunbathe in the good weather. See if you can spot them.
