Wildlife

The Park sits on our 400 acre farm and offers the opportunity to see an abundance of wildlife, from the fish in the pond, to the birds in the trees and animals in the fields. The Park itself is surrounded by established thick hedges and planted with tree, shrubs and bushes, offering habitats to an array of birds, insects and animals. On the farm we have planted thousands of trees over the past forty years offering shelter to many different species of bird, insect and animal. We are luckily enough to have three pairs of breeding Barn Owl, two pairs of breeding Little Owl and one pair of Tawny Owl. The kingfisher can often be seen along with buzzards, lapwings, hares, foxes along with the odd glimpse of some deer.

The farm is also involved in several environmental schemes to encourage wildlife and this has recently been evident in a bird survey which found over 50 species of bird on the farm. Barn Owl, Blackbird, Blue Tit, Canada Goose, Chaffinch, Common Tern, Dunnock, Feral Pigeon, Goldfinch, Great Tit, Greylag Goose, House Sparrow, Kestrel, Lesser Black-backed Gull, Little Owl, Mallard, Mistle Thrush, Peregrine, Red-legged Partridge, Reed Warbler, Sedge Warbler, Sparrowhawk, Stock Dove, Swift, Whitethroat, Woodpigeon, Yellow Wagtail, Black-headed Gull, Blackcap, Buzzard, Carrion Crow, Chiffchaff, Coot, Egyptian Goose, Gadwall, Great Crested Grebe, Greenfinch, House Martin, Jackdaw, Lapwing, Linnet, Marsh Harrier, Mute Swan, Pheasant, Reed Bunting, Robin, Skylark, Starling Swallow, Tuftef Duck, Willow Warbler, Wren, Yellowhammer.
