Wildlife in our churchyard

We are very lucky to have such a beautiful churchyard with open views of the countryside.
The churchyard management is 'wildlife-friendly', and Sarah Sigsworth, a member of our congregation scythes the grass to encourage wildflowers and promote the wellbeing of inhabitants such as toads and voles!
Nesting boxes, a bird-feeding station and a small pond provide hospitality to visitors including white and red-tailed bumblebees, azure damselflies, frogs, shieldbugs and newts. Please do read her wildlife conservation update from April 2020.
