Farthinghoe

Farthinghoe: There are plenty of obvious signs of mammals, especially badgers who have taken to digging up the paths looking for food. Pipistrelle and noctule bats find an ideal hunting ground here. Among the birds seen are treecreeper, bullfinch, breeding sparrowhawk, several species of warblers and long-tailed tit.

This small, amazingly diverse site is now a mosaic of developing woodland, open grassland and ponds.


The ponds and wet areas attract dragonflies and damselflies from the nearby lake and stream and in late July it is possible to find beautiful demoiselle damselflies in good numbers. There is also a colony of marbled whites butterflies on the site.
