Birds & Bees
Farmers who actually care....
We always trying to be busy bees when it comes to actually looking after our farm and environment. Richard makes a keen efford not to spray through the day and goes out in the evening once the bees have went back into their hives. We have also planted a large area in wild flower this year and we will keep you posted on how this goes. Leona has also signed up to the Limavady Bee Association to do the beginner class, and perhaps we may have our own honey this year!
We are always keen to work with any good bee keeper on our farm, please contact us, if you wish to place your bees in our fields.
We are delighted to be working with the RSPB in being the North West Ambassor for championing of birds. We are very keen on barn owls, as Richard was very lucky to capture one on video last year in one of our barns. We now have two owl boxes located on our farm, and hope they will come back to stay soon!
We are looking forward to welcoming a wildlife surveyor to look at our farm to see what birds we have living and breeding at Broglasco. So far we have spotted lapwings, skylarks, yellowhammer just some of the NI priority species.
Look forward to sharing more information and pictures soon.
