Fallow Deer in the Forest of Dean. Like many species of deer, the Fallow Deer is active throughout the 24-hour period, but in areas where human disturbance is high, they tend to be more active at night. They typically graze on grasses and rushes, but may also browse on young leaves, and also take cereals, berries and acorns.
