Challenging Disability Through Outdoor Adventure



Conservation

There is a large variety of wildlife on our site, and we manage our land to provide a variety of habitats for this wildlife.

One example of this is the ’hole’ in the roof of Kinsford apartment, shown in the photo above; its actually a ’bat entrance’ to our loft space, as we have a colony of lesser horseshoe bats! The bats can often be seen in warm evenings swooping low over the courtyard garden catching insects.

 

Other wildlife regularly seen on site include;

rabbits, badgers, hedgehogs, deer, voles, frogs, butterflies and many birds including blackbirds, robins, house martins, swallows, buzzards, siskin, chaffinch, brambling, greenfinch, goldfinch, green and greater spotted woodpeckers, wrens, various types of tit, barn and short eared owls, sparrow hawks, and a wide variety of water birds.

 

If you would like to find out more about identifying birds and animals on site, there is excellent information available on the RSPB's bird guide, the Natural History Museum's identification guides,  and Wildlife Watch's spotting sheets.
