More About Fallow Deer:
Fallow Deer (Dama dama) are large sociable deer with thick impressive antlers. They were first introduced to Britain by the Normans more than 1,000 years ago and have lived wild in our woodlands for centuries.
Like our native red deer, Fallows rut in the Autumn months. October – November is peak time to watch these deer as they participate in the annual rut, with the stags engaging in fierce battles to exert their right to mate with hinds. Like most deer Fallows are social animals, forming large herds for safety from predators. They are also one of the few species of deer that don’t lose their spots soon after birth.
Fallow Deer can be found in a wide range of habitats including woodland, heathland, grassland and parkland and are typically seen feeding out in the open grassy areas bordering woodland which provide shelter.
