Above, Our newest resident - a strong healthy male beaver makes his way to the lake for the first time on release day.
Greg has moved here from Bournemouth - and despite many carefully timed trips to build frames (including one in the middle of the night to keep the bees calm!) all are safely settled.
Greg has 5 large hives housing around 20,000 bees - and we hope to provide a pesticide and herbicide-free 'safe zone' for this vital and dwindling species. We are currently sowing 'bee plant' seed and hope to develop an 8 acre Wild Flower meadow to support them throughout the year.
Enormous thanks to John Arthey for his stunning photos of the bees and Greg :) click here for more information about John Arthey Images
