An abundance of wildlife
We are surrounded by many species - here are a few we have seen in the past 12 months:
We have many butterflies including gatekeepers, large white ringlets, red admirals and meadow browns.
And our wildflowers thrive on our organic land: our survey in June 2022 recorded over twenty varieties including meadowsweet (Filipendula ulmaria), red campion (Silene dioica), and selfheal (Prunella vulgaris)
A diverse landscape
The pasture, hedgerows, trees, and marshes provide a habitat for many species
We protect field margins to allow these large, golden flowers to thrive. Also known as Kingcup, the Marsh Marigold likes meadows, marshes, ditches and wet woodlands.
We farm around the old trees. Even when they finally die their trunks are left to provide a new dead wood habitat
