It's a pinnacle time of year for the wild deer herd in the parkland, as June and July is fawn season. The deer tend to take themselves off and look for a bit of cover, and the deer are very quiet during labour - a defence mechanism so they don't alert predators who may hurt their offspring. The new-born fawns tend to be hidden in the ferns and longer undergrowth for protection, so seeking them out is harmful to their wellbeing.
Here is some key advice from the Knole Estate Park and Deer Keeper, who manages and cares for the wild deer herd:
'If you see a fawn, you should simply leave it be. If somebody touches it or picks it up it will have a different scent and the mother will not recognise that fawn as her own and she will abandon it.'
