Deer: Primrose, Dandelion & Daisy

We now have 3 tiny fawns in our care. Tiny Primrose came in tonight after being brought to us by the lovely RSPCA. She is a little weak

and very sad but I am sure Dandelion and Daisy will make her feel at home. Petra came in last and came to us very late at night. She was sadly hit by a car and so is very poorly - a few sleepless nights are on the cards for us! We have our fingers crossed she will pull through though!

It is not easy to care for fragile roe fawns and mum knows best. If you see a fawn this month please leave it alone and call a rescue before you move it. Roe mums leave their youngsters alone all day while they feed and return to collect them at night. Just like us, Mums don't abandon their babies. Think before you move any wildlife you are in their home!

A lunch time walk to collect our wayward post. It was a little too far for Primrose so we carried them part of the way but Dandelion and Daisy ran and skipped the whole time - Petra hadn't arrived with us by this point. They all came in separately but have become the closest of friends and are now inseparable. A short walk is part of their daily routine as fawns need to ingest lots of vital minerals and nutrients from soil. It is a lovely task to do in the sun, with beautiful company and some much needed exercise!

OUTCOME:

These four were released on site after spending some time in our outside pre-release runs. We left the doors open for a few weeks just to make sure they had somewhere safe to go and food to eat. They continue to use it for about a week before moving to somewhere else. We even saw one of them come up to the office a few times which was lovely!
