Interesting neighbours – birds spotted on site

One of our favourite things about living here is the near constant discovery of the beautiful and awe inspiring wildlife that we share the farm with.  Inspired by the RSPB’s annual bird count we have decided to try to record all of the birds that visit the farm throughout the year.  Lockdown has given us the opportunity to sit and listen more on site as we would usually be busy with guests so we have updated our list to include all the new birds we have discovered.

Below is a list of confirmed sightings, we have a list of ‘potential sightings’ too and are reading up on identification so we can move birds from the potential to confirmed list.

We’d love to hear about any birds (or other wildlife) that you have seen on the farm so we can add them to the list and keep an eye out for them ?
