  • Wildlife at the Old Rectory: flowers, trees, hedges, ponds and orchard
    hoped that the Orchard will in time provide food and a home for wildlife as well as a source of fruit and Cyder for our guests and us During July there is usually a good show of Bee Orchids Pyramidal Orchids Our Wildlife Pond In the Winter of 2009 we had a large wildlife pond dug for once the fact that our soil is heavy clay played in to our hands as instead of the need for a pond liner we were able to have it puddled clay is the traditional and most eco friendly method of lining ponds The clay was compacted on the inside of the empty pond to remove all the air spaces and to break down the structure The pond is some 80 feet from side to side and has deep shallow and boggy areas which we have planted so that it will provide habitats cover food and perches for a wide range of creatures attracted to The Old Rectory Hedges Trees As well as our orchard we have also planted a large number of Native trees Oak Silver Birch Hazel Ash Beech and Hornbeam and Hedging such as Wild Cherry Wild Pear Blackthorn Quickthorn and Field Maple Much of the hedging has edible berries or fruit to provide the birds with food As well as the trees that we have planted we have also inherited some beautiful mature trees Oak Yew Silver Birch and a magnificent 85 foot Horse Chestnut We have under planted these with bulbs such as Aconites and Snowdrops Wildflowers We are beginning to develop an area of the field as a wildflower area and in our field orchard we try to follow a mowing programme that is sympathetic to plants wildlife The native flowers grasses in the field include Birds Foot
