The Fallow Deer is the commonest deer in Britain, where it was introduced by the Romans, and is common throughout much of Europe. It is widespread in the British Isles, where it favours mature deciduous or mixed woodlands and forests, as well as parkland areas. Seldom ventures far from woodland cover, especially during daytime, and usually seen in small groups.

New Forest, Hampshire, England, February.
Notes: Photographed in diffuse dusk light about 10 minutes after cloud-obscured sunset which resulted in very 'cold' colours but makes image look as if backlit by moonlight
