There are a few Sedge Warblers still singing. They are looking a bit faded now, their feathers are worn - if you'd been wearing the same coat for the past 4 months, it would also be looking a bit faded

Yellow Wagtails are on their second broods on the farm, they like to nest on the ground in fields of peas or potatoes. They are a red-listed species, due to the serious decline in breeding numbers, so wide crop diversity & insect-rich habitats are vital for their survival

Early morning wildlife on the borders of our neighbouring farm. We don't cut our roadside verges, keeping them as a wildflower haven for pollinators. Over 700 plant species grow on road verges in the UK

We often see Marsh Harriers down the farm, this one is dropping down on a frog, or a small mammal or bird. Once only a rare sight in East Anglia, they are now seen in other parts of the country which have reedbed habitats

This Barn Owl has caught a mole which was too big to swallow. In general we're not seeing many Owls flying in the day, however the recent wet weather will have had impacted on the vole population which could make daytime hunting a necessity

Our organic spring barley crops are grown to sell the seedto organic farmers. We walk through the crops to pull all the wild oats out as they must not be harvested. The load would be rejected if any wild oat seeds were found in the barley

Fish farming was planned at a site in the village which didn’t work out but has instead become a superb wildlife site. On a similar site we have seen Sedge Warblers, Reed Warblers, Whitethroats, Dunnocks, Blackbirds, Wrens, Reed Buntings, Tree Sparrows, Moorhens & Marsh Harriers

Sedge Warblers have been in full song these last few weeks & it's good to know their numbers are up this year
