Fallow Deer, Dama dama
This is a recording of a male fallow deer or ‘Buck’ bellowing in Haldon Forest, Devon. These animals are usually sighted in broadleaf and open coniferous woodland and are found in most counties throughout the UK. They tend to be gregarious with group size and degree of sexual segregation being largely dependant on population density and habitat. Adult males and females tend to live apart for most of the year until they come together to mate.
