A rare opportunity to make this traditional Lakeland farmstead your home for a day. Immerse yourself in the traditional farming way of life, potter in the garden, study wildflowers and insects, learn about conservation farming.
Tanya and Edmund Hoare will present a talk on swift conservation followed by light refreshments. We will then walk nearby observing our local swifts as they feed and visit their nests in surrounding buildings.
Local naturalist Nigel Gilligan will lead a walk around the reserve, which supports 17 butterfly species, dragonflies and damselflies, bumblebees, notable solitary bees and wasps, orchids, and rare flowers such as yellow wort. Stunning views.
