Warm weather means our woodland is positively bursting into life. Bluebells, primroses and wild garlic carpet the ground and the dawn chorus is at full strength every morning at around 4.30am. Tom, from the British Trust for Ornithology, has checked our 100+ nestboxes and has reported that, although late as a result of the harsh spring, many are starting to be used by blue tits, great tits, redstart, tree sparrow and pied flycatcher.

Durham County Council have made a fantastic job of improving the footpath between the site and the village. It's now safe and level with steps making it safe to use whatever the weather conditions - even the sheep like it!

The last lamb of 2018 has been born at last and the cattle are out in the pastures for the Summer months, next jobs on the farm are clipping, silage and hay making along with routine care of livestock.

 

 

 

 

 

 

In February, we were pleased to be runner-up in the Teesdale Business Awards, Social Responsibility category, which recognised the work done on the site and the farm to support the environment and wildlife.
