With the generous support of the Penwith Landscape Project, and thanks to Gryff on his digger, last week we carried out some more nature conservation projects on the farm.
|Using half an old telegraph pole, we've erected a support for a barn-owl box, on the edge of our young woodland. Two barn owls have been seen over the farm several times this winter. The box is to follow.
|Also in the woodland field, we have created a series of shallow scrapes and ponds for wildlife, as a wetland habitat.
|New scrapes in the woodland.
|Again as a wetland habitat, we have re-instated an historic drainage ditch at the bottom of Hotel Field, part of the southern boundary of the farm.
|This is the small wetland area that we created earlier this year in a bottom corner of the allotment field, which we are peased to see is already full of water, and hopefully the associated wildlife will follow.
