Dairy Barns | Wildlife on the Farm

"Hannah has been a superstar and has made our wedding here a very special one and the flowers were beautiful."

Mr and Mrs Radcliffe

Dairy Barns at Lound Farm in Hickling is a working farm covering 360 acres of grazing marshland and arable land with a flock of sheep too.  There are plenty of farm tracks, meadows and autumn stubble fields, all of which adds up to a wonderful place to spot some of our wonderful Norfolk wildlife. So if you come to stay with us, do take a walk around the farm and along the country lanes and keep an eye out for the following species:

If you’re lucky you may well see a member of the Red Deer herd who live in the woods behind the farm and regularly cross the fields to graze and we also see Muntjac, Chinese Water Deer and hare.

The farm is a “birder’s” delight and we have spotted  the following….

  • Barn owls
  • Cranes
  • Marsh Harriers
  • Swallows
  • Housemartins
  • Skylarks
  • Pink Footed Geese
  • Kingfishers
  • Yellowhammers

We’d love to hear from our guests what they might have spotted so we can add it to our list!
