Farm is associated with conservation of wet grasslands and the recreation of dry
grasslands using seeds gathered from the local area.
The most numerous bird
to visit Flitcham is the Pink-footed Goose. Up to 20,000 visit Abbey Farm and
some individuals come back year after year.
Agriculture and wildlife can work well side by side so
why not explore some great farmland locations.
- Farms can offer some excellent opportunities for nature
watching from birds of prey to small mammals.
