Top things to do in Spring

  1. Walk around the farm listening for birdsong
  2. Find out what's nesting in and around the farm
  3. Last chance to see the avocets before they move off to breed away from the River Exe

Top things to do in Summer

  1. Book a place on an evening walk for a chance to see a barn owl
  2. Enjoy watching sand martins, dragonflies and hobbies over the wetlands
  3. It's the best time of year to see orchids

Top things to do in Autumn

  1. Watch out for ospreys which have stopped to feed around the Exe on their way to Africa
  2. Come for a walk around the farm and see what's about
  3. See if you can spot a kingfisher - perhaps our most colourful bird

Top things to do in Winter

  1. Watch hundreds of wintering brent geese from indoors
  2. Lapwings, black-tailed godwits, snipe and maybe a merlin - all could be seen on a walk
  3. Look for winter visitors taking full advantage of the farm and old crops
