On the farm

We have a wonderful variety of wildlife here at Astrofarm from the regular well known  cheeky garden birds on our feeding stations to the rarer unseen in UK species. We are especially proud of our Black Woodpecker and summer visitor the Hoopoo bird!

We have Swallows in the summer nesting in the barn and delightful goldfinches, spotted flycatchers and long tailed tits visiting our tables. With nesting owls, buzzards and a resident hedgehog who visits regularly and wild deer, hares, red squirrels, lizards there is plenty to observe and photograph.

Our large pond will encourage water birds and our hides carefully positioned, make a great spot for observing. In the summer the wildflower meadow, sunflowers and lavender will attract a wide variety of wildlife and we have some stunning butterflies and bees in the meadow enjoying our glorious weather. 

The twice yearly spectacle of the migrating Storks passes directly overhead , a not to be missed experience. Check out ‘Stork Watch’ here for anticipated dates.
