October has seen most of the Summer migrant birds make their departure; but just as they leave, our winter birds make their appearance. Small flocks of Redwings, Siskins and Redpolls have been seen in the last few weeks.
Butterflies are still aplenty; Comma, Red Admiral and Peacock species are often seen flying around the Gardens on warm days.
The feeders are attracting a lot of different birds including; Tits, Goldfinch, House Sparrows, not forgetting our daily visitors the Great Spotted Woodpeckers!
Since installing our Night Vision Camera in the Woodland; we've picked up footage of; Foxes, Badgers and Muntjac as they feed during the night.
Kingfishers are very active on the river often seen flying past the terrace. Have you been fortunate enough to spot one during your visit to the Mill?
