They successfully bred at the site for the first time in Summer last year and raised three healthy chicks. With luck, they will breed again this year! Cumbria Wildlife Trust is working hard to give them the safe haven they need after their long flight from West Africa.
We are holding a special event on Sunday 3 May to showcase how we grow our cottage garden plants on the site at Halecat. The day will include practical demonstrations & tours of the growing areas & gardens with the nursery team.
Cumbria Wildlife Trust is holding two conservation work parties in the parish in April.
