Wildlife Haven

With guidance from wildlife organisations, we have created a wildlife friendly environment at this rural site. This includes erecting bat boxes, owl boxes and various styles of bird boxes.

We have multiple bird feeding stations providing additional food sources which are invaluable during the harsh winter months and the breeding season.

We have maintained hedgerows and provided wildlife friendly areas to encourage butterflies and other insects to dwell.

We have sown native meadow flowers in our verges and do not cut these until late in the season in order to provide further habitats for insects, birds and small mammals.

As part of our on-going carbon offset goals we annually plant native broad leaf trees on our site with the added benefit these have to the local environment. We have deliberately added fruit trees to these plantings which helps provide a valuable food source especially to birds at the on-set of the winter, as well as providing a healthy snack for our staff.
