ES case study: Whittington Lodge Farm (AE001)

For more than a decade, Ian Boyd’s farm at Whittington Lodge in the Cotswolds has been successfully working towards the management of farm habitats for wildlife. The farm has changed from being production-led to working in harmony with wildlife. His enthusiasm for this approach stands out, resulting in an abundance of wildflowers and insects attracting birds all year. The range of species attracted includes lapwings, corn buntings, grey partridge, small toadflax, greater and lesser horseshoe bats, and great crested newts. This abundance of wildlife sits alongside an increasing educational programme and a well-run commercial farm.
