  • Bridal Project Update 2012 and new projects for 2013 - The Oak Barn, Hittisleigh Barton
    meadow Our new acre flowery meadow largely failed in 2011 so we had another go in 2012 reseeding the area with a mix of native flowers and grasses This was spectacularly successful and we counted over 30 plants in the meadow a photo is on the website We have cut the meadow in three different lengths and used the hay to strew on the field opposite and are hoping that this will become more flowery too this year The meadow will change over the years and we are expecting less ox eye daisy and poppies and more yellow rattle in 2013 Bird mixes and cover crops A disastrous year for the bird mixes too dry in the spring and too wet in the summer meant we did not seed the cover crop areas until July some appeared and some failed completely Bird ringing and observations shows the cover crops are used by lots of small birds and a goshawk was seen hunting the same over a cover crop There are meant to be only 10 pairs of goshawk in Devon so very nice to see one at Hittisleigh Other highlights on the bird front were spotted flycatchers using nest boxes for the first time on the farm and a flock of 60 70 snipe used the fields for several days before moving on We also had high numbers of yellow hammers Bridal projects for 2013 The white admiral butterfly A passing lepidopterist once advised we had one of the biggest colonies of white admirals he had seen in the south west but numbers have been very low over the past few summers The caterpillars eat honeysuckle and we have been thinning the woods with a view to retaining and promoting honeysuckle and we will get out and survey the woods

  • Conservation update – 2013 - The Oak Barn, Hittisleigh Barton
    will lead to an increase of woodland butterflies Another find of 2013 was the cauliflower or brain fungus which appeared for the first time and does indeed look like a brain sitting on the ground stinkhorn fungi also popped up We are hoping the Devon fungi group will visit in the autumn so hopefully more discoveries will be made 2013 was meant to be the year we set about reversing the bracken invasion of the middle valley but on the first day of spraying I managed to have an accident with the quad bike which left me incapacitated for six weeks with a crushed chest bracken 1 John 0 Having troubled the NHS for the first time in over 50 years I can confirm they do remarkable things We will be returning to the fray with the bracken in 2014 with hand sprayers Our new hay meadow had a lot more grass and less flowers in it this year which we expected and the green hay strewing undertaken in autumn 2012 resulted in wild carrot appearing in the meadow We took green hay off this meadow and strewed it on the bigger grassy area to the north and hopefully some of the flowers will make an appearance in this area this year We had high hopes of a bumper year for house martins and had fifteen nests unfortunately all the birds left after a single brood and we were without martins from August onwards I have no idea why they did not have a second brood high numbers sometimes attracts raptors but hopefully we will see them back in 2014 Sheep The Shetland sheep had five lambs one died two made it to the freezer and two females were added to the flock We purchased a young ram Ian and

  • Conservation Update - 2014 - The Oak Barn, Hittisleigh Barton
    broods well into September Butterflies and moths The main excitement of the year was on the butterfly front The hot weather was good for butterflies and we had thousands of small skippers and high numbers of marbled whites and other grassland butterflies When showing people around white admirals and silver washed fritillaries turned up on cue and I saw the caterpillars and chrysalids of the white admiral for the first time A colony of pearl bordered fritillaries previously unrecorded here appeared I have never seen one before and we now have three fritillary species present The pearl bordered fritillaries has undergone rapid declines in England and its appearance here was a source of great pleasure The task now is to try and maintain the colony and hopefully the hot weather will mean it should reappear in 2015 The dingy skipper was also present in good numbers they are not the most decorous of butterflies and easily mistaken for a moth but they have only been recorded here once around eight years ago and are also in steep decline Again it is a butterfly I have never seen before so good to see a very active breeding colony here I did not do much moth recording but did creep past the 300 species mark those who know their moths will know this is not an unusually high number for a site but a good year for moths with trap often very full Habitat Management We completed fencing areas of the butterfly valley and have been able to re introduce grazing for the first time in 14 years We fenced the easiest areas and are not yet able to graze the densest areas of bracken bramble and gorse but can now halt the loss of grassland We are now the proud owners
