Our Flora and Fauna
- Browsholme Estate is rich in wildlife and we seek to do more to encourage and manage all forms of mammal, reptile, birds, insects, flora and fauna. To do so we must understand and register existing populations in order to enhance those that need protection or have become scarce.
- Annual surveys of, for example, bats, moths, hedgehogs, birds, wildflowers assist us with this.
- The results of the surveys contribute to our estate management, planting schedule and lake and pond maintenance.
- Wood chip and firewood is sourced from 120 acres of woodland which is in a sustainable management scheme primarily by promoting regeneration of existing trees, rather than import of transplants.
