Devon Wildlife Greater Horseshoe Bat Project.
In conjunction with the Devon Wildlife Trust, Devon Greater Horseshoe Bat Project, Woodland Trust and Moor Trees we have planted a new hedgerow on the farm. Our small hedge will contribute to the project, and help create an important flight corridor for the Horseshoe Bats. These specific bats are known to roost on the cliffs at Berry Head and fly inland to feed. The hedging will attract other insects for the bats to feed on, as well as important nesting sites for birds.
Our 205 trees were delivered by Moor Trees, and had to be planted as soon as possible. We managed to plant the trees on the 12th January 2020. Digging the young samplings onto an old Devon bank, protecting them with guards and staking the trees as necessary. All the family and friends were involved in the planting. The children were especially helpful passing the tree stakes and making sure everyone was well fed!
