  • Whitby Naturalists Club visit Mulgrave Estate

    Whitby Naturalists Club visit Mulgrave Estate

    Around 20 members of the Whitby Naturalists Club visited the Estate on the evening of the 3 July for a guided tour. The group spent two and a half hours looking at the various conservation work that is taking place across the Estate and the huge difference this is making to the biodiversity value of the area. The group looked at tree planting schemes to link woodlands, winter bird seed plots, hedgerow restoration projects, moorland management and parkland restoration schemes. We will aim to continue to work closely with the Club into the future on mutually beneficial schemes.

  • Conservation grazing begins to restore Mulgrave's moorlands

    Conservation grazing begins to restore Mulgrave's moorlands

    Conservation grazing begins to restore Mulgrave’s moorlands Belted Galloway cattle are assisting in the restoration of one of the important moorland areas on Mulgrave Estate. Westonby Moor, close to the A171, is part of the extensive Countryside Stewardship scheme to reintroduce grazing and combat natural succession on moorlands across the Estate. By combining the grazing with some active intervention to remove some of the birch scrub and gorse, the moorland will gradually reappear as the dominant habitat. This type of moorland restoration contributes to stabilising the net amount of the North York Moors area covered by this internationally important habitat. The local area has the largest expanse of heather moorland in western Europe therefore is a key habitat to conserve, enhance and expand wherever possible.

    We are pleased to be working with our farming tenants Chris & Colin Foster, who have introduced their Belted Galloways or ‘Belties’ as they are known, onto the moor. As our Conservation Lawnmowers”, the ‘Belties’ will stay on the moor for most of the year and are classified as a rare breed in the UK.
