Fallow Deer

Now is a good time to spot deer With no leaves on the trees and bushes there is less cover for them to hide in. We spotted these fallow deer on the Sherborne Estate where they were originally introduced for hunting and deer coursing.Fallow deer are not a native species but are thought to have been introduced by the Normans.
