Around June every year, we see the first fawn born among the herd of 200 fallow deer.
Fawning season is a magical time at Dyrham Park. If you are lucky enough to witness a fawn being born, it's important to steer clear and allow it to bond with its mother.
Our fallow deer can be seen across the park throughout the year, but during fawning season you're more likely to see them at a distance in the bushes and woodland areas. It's important to give them space.

Outdoors Officer Beth Weston explains: "Throughout June and July, the Fallow does (female deer) give birth to their fawns. Amazingly, and unlike us humans, fawns are able to stand up within minutes of being born. They rely on their mothers for food and warmth.
