Our Wildlife

Today, the traditional stone buildings have been converted into housing for the Countryside Classroom and accommodation, however, the woods, hedges, and meadows are as much a haven for wildlife as they have ever been. We are particularly proud that our management has ensured that healthy populations of a number of red-listed bird species can still to be found here.

There is also a wide range of mammals that make their homes on the farm. Among them are Bats, Otters, Badgers, Roe Deer, Amphibians, Reptiles and Invertebrates.

The farm and woodland walks will take you through all the various habitats and give you an excellent chance of seeing some of the wildlife. We are very keen for visitors to record their observations, which we then submit to the Environmental Records Centre for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly (ERCCIS).

Restoration of old ponds is planned and there is an on-going programme of providing bird and bat boxes around the farm. We have assembled lists of plants, birds and mammals and are currently working on invertebrate lists.

 

Sharing our passion with you.

Are you looking for an ecological study location? We have 170 acres of organic farm and woodland that makes for an excellent resource for research.

If you are a student, a researcher or teacher involved in Agronomy to Zoology and have an exciting project idea or require a place to carry out fieldwork we would love to hear from you. As well as aiding your research it would add to our understanding of our ecology and the effects of farming.
