The Hay Hut

Conserve

Our aim is to keep this special piece of land as a sanctuary for wildlife. For a relatively small site it provides an extremely diverse range of habitats, and guests will hopefully get to observe an array of different species during their stay. The mixed woodland is a haven for birds, and it’s a real delight to watch the sun go down from the hut listening to their chatterings and calls. A resident family of buzzards are seen daily, and barn owls and red kites have recently been spotted, along with more traditional residents from woodpeckers to wood pigeons. 

Whilst the top section of field is cut for hay once a year, the slope leading down to the stream is left wild, and the resultant mixture of plant species means an abundance of butterflies, dragonflies, moths and numerous other insects. The stream itself rises and falls with the water level, and is a happy home for all sorts of creatures.
