Sightings 2016

Little Heath Farm is home to more than just an extensive range of plants and cakes; it is also home to an array of wildlife.

We thought, this year, that we would make a list of as many of the species that visit us as possible, just so we can see how diverse the nursery is.

Each year, we always have an abundance of people who visit and enjoy sitting outside, watching the birds feed and the butterflies flutter.

If you see anything at the nursery that we do not have on the list, please let us know. We’ll try to use our Facebook page to add photos of the wildlife as we go as well, so it is a good place to keep up to date.
