We’ve just a had a snapshot survey done on how the bees were doing on the farm since we planted a large clover crop and the good news is that there are hundreds of bumblebees and other pollinating insects – which is what we want. Here’s the rare shrill carder bee working hard in the field.

They are also large spiders who have built their webs in tall vegetation and usually catch grasshoppers in their very strong webs. They are amazing creatures. This is only the start of the conservation work we are doing here. Our next project is working with the RSPB to give safe habitat to the endangered Turtle Doves.

If you want to be a part of the project why not come and glamp in the middle of it all and see how our hard work is going.
