Big Bird Watch Fun on The Farm
January 29 @ 8:00 am - January 30 @ 5:00 pm£5.00
To celebrate the RSPBs Big Garden Bird Watch, we have decided to open Ridgeway Farm for the weekend of the 29th and 30th January.
Ridgeway Farm is not only the home to a variety of farm animals, but is also home to a wide selection of wild birds. As farmers, we work with our wildlife and provide the perfect habitats for a wide range of creatures, whether that be through providing winter bird feed, from our crops and hedgerows, or shelter in our hedges, trees and barns, or water from our ponds and other watercourses. Throughout the year we are fortunate to share our home with a variety of birds; Corn Bunting, Oystercatchers, Gold Finches, Blue Tits, Great Tits, Long Tail Tits, Buzzards, Kestrels, Sparrow Hawks, Black Birds, Jays, Nut Hatchers, Robin, Woodpecker Wagtails, Shell ducks, Snipe, Wood Pigeon, Redwing, Mistle Thrush, Wren, Merlin, Magpie, Barn Owl, Little Owl, Canadian Geese, Rooks, Swallows, Swifts, Chiff Chaff, Chaffinch, Tree Sparrow, Curlews and Lapwings, just to name a few!
So we thought it would be a great opportunity for you to visit our farm and see all our familiar friendly farm animals together with a winter farm walk to see which birds you can spot around the farm. We will also be doing “bird” related crafts and activities in our Education Shed.
As it is also Farmhouse Breakfast week we will also be offering an All Day Farmhouse Breakfast which will be available from our Hatchery.
Tickets are limited so don’t delay book today! Tickets are only £5 per person and everyone walking age upwards needs a ticket!
