In the owners own words-
This property will particularly appeal to those who have an interest in wildlife. I have been encouraging wildlife into the garden by letting the grass grow and last spring I built a 50sq m wildlife pond which attracted wildlife immediately. Barn Owls sometimes hunt by hopping along the post and rail fence and Tawny owls nest in the oak trees. Butterflies, Bees and Ladybirds have been increasing year on year due to leaving some nettles to grow and the wild grassland. In the Summer Swallows nest in one of the unused farmer owned stables and a Barn Owl nest box is located in another which has been used and is registered with the Suffolk Barn Owl trust, you can hear the Skylarks and on occasion Curlews on the back fields and bats come out of hibernation and hunt around the house. Weasels can be seen out the back rearing their young amongst some rough shrub-land and Hares are all over and are seen every day in the garden.
