A bit about nature conservation...
White House Farm is a haven for wildlife with over fifty bird species including nightingale, song thrush, bullfinch, warblers, lesser and greater spotted woodpeckers, kingfishers, barn, tawny and little owls. The farm supports large numbers of butterflies, dragonflies and protects Biodiversity Action Plan endangered species such as turtle dove, grasshopper warbler and greatcrested newt. It is a very unusual site, having escaped modern, intensive farming practices, and being left to Nature since the1950s.
