This morning I checked on my ponies, took some time to observe one of the #kneppwildland herds of Exmoor ponies and was serenaded by the sound of nightingales and the call of a cuckoo. I also realised I can see one of our stork nests from my horses field with a pair of binoculars. Not bad for before 8am on a Monday... #rewilding #explore #nightingale #cuckoo #exmoorpony #whitestork

A walk through Knepp wildland to find the first wild white storks that have hatched in the UK since the 1400’s. It was truly amazing to spot the nest in an old oak tree and to watch the young being fed. Knepp is also a fascinating landscape as it is one of the pioneering rewilding projects. They have turned 3.5k acres of intensively farmed arable land back to wild scrubland & woodland, introducing free roaming herds of Longhorn cattle, Exmouth Ponies, Tamworth pigs and deer. Allowing nature to take over and reclaim the landscape has seen Knepp become a habitat for many rare breeds, such as Turtledoves and Nightingales and a haven for wildlife. This is a very potted description of the work that is being carried out at Knepp. There is much written about this conservation project and a podcast at www.knepp.co.uk

Sometimes the best adventures are those enjoyed close to home. Knepp Castle Estate is just stunning, and the beautiful acres are home to wild deer, cattle, horses and pigs. #hewberrys #kneppcastle #kneppwildland #sundaystroll #isolationwalks #familydayout #sussex #sussexcounty #placestovisit #westsussex #kneppestate #kneppcastleestate #matildamaloo #covid19 #sunshinetherapy #sunshineinmay

The week of the bee starts today here in Belgium, whose aim is to attract attention the perilous situation our pollinators are in. From solitary bees to bumblebees, all are suffering from drastically declining food sources and the incessantly spraying of pesticides in both gardens and on our food crops. In my research on how to make my own garden as pollinator friendly as possible, I came across Wilding by Isabelle Tree. In her book, Tree (what a great name for a nature writer) describes how the farm she and her husband were running kept being economically unsustainable, which led them to cease all activities and start a pioneering rewilding project. In short, they sat back as much as possible and let nature do its things. With astounding results. What struck me the most but honestly didn't surprise me at all, was the resistance of the farm's neighbours, who only saw the growing weeds encroaching on their land. Yet, as nature took over, endangered species as turtle doves, purple emperor butterflies and peregrine falcons found their way to the farm. I've included some photos of how I'm slowly planting my new garden full of pollinator friendly plants. The area you see on here was an entire chicken run before I bought it, so that's definitely an improvement already. Still, as I am implementing a no spraying rule, I've had numerous conversations with people who think I'm crazy for wanting to only handpull weeds and - God forbid - to actually let some do their thing. The last picture is a part of garden which I haven't touched and has been buzzing with all kinds of insects. So if you'd like to educate yourself on what happens when you let nature run its course, definitely check out Wilding. You might think twice the next time you want to pull out a stinging nettle. #bookstagram #igreads #wilding #isabellatree #nature #bees🐝 #pollinators #kneppwildland

This evening was lovely. Chilled watching these guys with a couple of beers and snacks. This photo reminds me for some reason of a Japanese painting. #stork #storks #kneppstorks #knepp #kneppwildland #canon #teamcanon #britishwildlife #sigma #sussex #bbcwildlife #bbcwildlifepotd #bird #birds #pic #photo #insta #westsussex

When you’re peeking through the gap in the hedgerow you see if you can spy any creatures enjoying the last of the evening light and, while you’re taking a photo (this photo), something flies overhead... . . A cuckoo! Hearing the first cuckoo of spring is an event in my family. My gran was a big fan and neither me nor my mum are satisfied until we’ve heard that cuc-koo. To me, it’s like gran calling Ka-ty Ka-ty and it makes me glow with her memory. . . I heard my first of 2020 at Church Norton on 17 May, during a bracing coastal walk, but at #Knepp on 24 May I SAW my very first cuckoo! . . Deflated when my OH cried “there’s a cuckoo flying past” (while I took the photo), I stopped, waited and looked around. We could still hear the call... then... the cuckoo only flew right over us – cuckooing away – landed in a tree opposite (although at some distance) and continued to call and answer with another bird further away on the estate. . . Two cuckoos cuckooing, one flying past and then sitting to be looked at through the binoculars. Incredible! This was the perfect end to a magical day at Knepp. . . . #knepp #kneppwildland #kneppestate #rewilding #sussexwildlife #cuckoo #nature #naturelovers #wildlife_perfection #wildlifeaddicts #wildlifeconservation #birder #birding #birdwatching #westsussex #natureseekers #natureheals #africanbirds #britishbirds #firstcuckooofspring #firstcuckoooftheyear #firstcuckoo #firstcuckoocall
