We love our wildlife and want to share it with you. It can be easy to forget that we have such a diverse habitat here at the Mill.
Here’s some information about the types of birds you might see when you visit.
As you enjoy your walk around Jordans Mill keep your eye out for some of the wonderful wildlife that you may see in and around the Mill and also near the water’s edge.
From the beautiful swans gliding down the river Ivel towards the Mill, to the aquamarine flash of our resident kingfisher zooming along the river in front of the cafe decking to the willow tree where he sits and watches out for minnows and sticklebacks.
You may also be lucky to see a greater spotted woodpecker on the feeders by the bridge entrance; it really likes the pink suet in the green feeder and is often around. We also have a pair of Wrens to the left of the decking where they have built a nest in the mud by the river’s edge.
If you wait long enough you may also see the yellow wagtail who is often seen eating flies and insects at the water’s edge or catch a glimpse of the little Egrets who are often by the edge catching fish in the shallows.
Occasionally a red Kite will be floating on the thermals above the Mill and especially over the fields on the other side of the gardens, distinctive by their “forked” tails.
All of our food is freshly prepared in our café where we use as much from our allotments as possible.
