Many of our fallow, red and Pere David deer have given birth to their young.
Often when people find the fawns they seem to have been abandoned. This is not the case.
The mother leaves the fawn when she goes to feed, she returns every two to three hours to feed it.
It is born with no scent to protect it against predators.
She is rarely far away, the only thing that would stop her returning would be the presence of people and dogs.
At this time of year we ask all dog owners to KEEP ALL dogs on leads.
If you see a young fawn do not touch it and move away immediately.
May, June, July is fawning time in the Park.
