Langdyke has 72 bird boxes positioned across its reserves; there are eight types of orchid growing during a year at Swaddywell Pit and the Trust has planted 79 heritage fruit trees which are growing in the community orchard at Etton.
Just a handful of fascinating facts included in the 2019 Langdyke Countryside Trust annual review, sent out recently to members.
In other areas of the report:
- Chair Richard Astle looks at the many threats to nature in the area
- There’s a round-up of happenings in our natural world during 2019; and
- We take a special look at Operation Turtle Dove
