On 10th and 11th August our very good friends from the Essex Wildlife Trust will once again be here at the farm with displays and information on their important work and their nature reserves, nature parks and information centres.

They run a fantastic 87 nature reserves, 2 nature parks and 8 visitor centres, 25 of which are within 15 miles of Brentwood, which provide protection for some of our rarest species of animals and plants. These reserves give people the opportunity to enjoy and appreciate the rich variety of habitats which were once widespread in our counties.

Essex Wildlife Trust is one of 47 local trusts which form The Wildlife Trusts network, dedicated to the achievement of a United Kingdom richer in wildlife. The Wildlife Trusts collectively care for more than 2,400 nature reserves and between them have more than 800,000 members.

For further information please visit www.essexwt.org.uk or better still meet them when you visit the farm in August. By the way, the above photo from the Essex Wildlife Trust website was taken by Gary Jacobs and is of Packham the Barn Owl. Other images are below also from their website.
