Fallow deer droppings 2 500x500

Fallow deer droppings can be separate or grouped in clumps.

Fallow deer droppings usually occur in groups, but are sometimes scattered around singly. When fresh, they have a moist appearance and are either black or dark brown. They dry out to a dull light brown. Individual pellets look like small balls about 10mm in diameter. On closer examination, however, they are elongated and more pointed at one end.
