Breeding wader habitat created in 2000 south of Reedham.
Raveningham Estate prides itself on its commitment to the environment that surrounds its farming and forestry businesses; with a range of habitats from wet grassland, for breeding waders and migratory wildfowl, through to the creation of an arable mosaic to encourage a greater diversity. BAP (Biodiversity Action Plan) species take priority. These are plants and animals that have seen a huge decline in the past 3-4 decades, such as lapwing, barn owl, brown hare, bullfinch, grey partridge and turtle dove. A natural history survey is carried out annually to identify rare arable plants such as the cornflower (once common within the local landscape). Also the monitoring of local populations of moths and butterflies takes place in the summer months to identify measures we can put in place to cease their decline.
