Otter footprints have been seen on the banks of the stream that runs through the bottom of the valley at Paccombe Farm, although none of our staff have seen them in person yet.
Paccombe Farm also has a thriving pond next to the farm yard where wild and rescued ducks nest in the banks which is protect by a fence to deter the local foxes.
Woods Farm has a series of pools of water. The deepest one has fish that were introduced many years ago. The fish have thrived alongside the wild aquatic creatures.
There is a man-made pond at Brookfield Farm which was originally installed to collect spring and rainwater to be used to extinguish fires in an emergency. Some of the fish stock from Woods Farm was introduced and are thriving very well. A heron is often seen on the bank and he helps to keep the fish stock down!
