Rare white fallow deer.


We love showing off the beautiful wildlife that exists in Northern Ireland. These wonderful pictures sent to us by Eamon McClean from the Speedwell Trust show little bambies recently born in Parkanaur Forest Park near Dungannon.

Eamon explains that the quality of the photos featuring the fawns is not as good as he would have wished. They had to be taken from a distance because naturally the mothers are very protective of their babies.

So far three fawns have been born, but more are to follow. The Speedwell Trust are running some fantastic events this month, so seize the opportunity to see for yourself these new deer families.

White Deer


Helen Mark took a summer trip to Parkanaur Forest accompanied by Eamon McClean of the Speedwell Trust, Basil Lenaghan from the Forest Service and a collection of parents and children.

Listen to their magical visit and find out more about the White Fallow deer herd.

BBC Newsline reporter Martin Cassidy visited Parkanaur Forest to report on the birth of recently born fawns in July.
