They range from flora and fauna of many kinds, orchids and grasses to fungi and litchen.
There are over 30 varieties of birds. Eagles soar above the high ridge behind the site and many garden birds feed on our nut feeders and nest in the boxes provided around the site.
Mammals as large as Red Deer to the small Pipistrelle Bat occupy the area and we have a resident family of Pine Martens who like to be fed anything sweet, bread and jam being a favourite!! Red Squirrels also make a recurring appearance quite often stealing the bird nuts, no greys here yet!!!!
Reptiles such as common lizards, slow worms, frogs, newts keep home in the burns and warm wet grass around the edge of the site. We are also graced with butterflies and bumble
