The children have worked together to create and plant the new sensory garden full of herbs as well as a fairy garden giving way to some wonderful storytelling.

A number of Exmoor ponies have arrived on the Estate recently to assist us with grazing our moor, heath and rough grassland areas. The Exmoors are highly regarded as being one of the best choices of livestock for conservation grazing. The ponies are semi wild and more than capable of adapting to life on our moors here at Mulgrave. They are on loan from the Yorkshire Exmoor Pony Trust (YEPT) and are recognised as a rare breed in the UK

Restoring and repairing Murkside’s dry stone walls.
Work has begun in earnest on the southern part of the Estate at Murkside Farm. Located between Goathland and Egton, the fields here at Murkside are divided up by a network of dry stone walls. Unfortunately, over the years the walls had fallen into disrepair and restoring them is going to be a mammoth task. Over 2000m has been identified for restoration and Estate contractors have recently made a start on the work. Restoring dry stone walls is a real skill with an eye for detail needed as well as ensuring the wall will be stockproof and stand for another 100 years or so. Further information on dry stone walling can be found here https://www.dswa.org.uk/
The wall restoration project is part of Mulgrave Estates’ higher tier Countryside Stewardship agreement.

As part of our large agri- environment scheme on the Estate, we frequently check on the measures and options that we’ve put in place via the scheme for biodiversity. Monitoring and evaluation of the scheme is just as important as identifying where they should go and how to do them. Measuring success means ensuring that we’ve done the right thing in the right place and that the wildlife is benefiting from the various options. One specific example relates to installing Barn Owl boxes. Mulgrave Estate has, over the last two years, put up a number of Barn Owl boxes at various locations within farm buildings across the Estate. We’re pleased to say that a good proportion of them have been used either as roosts or for nesting sites and raising young. Installing these boxes has contributed to stabilising and expanding a healthy population of Barn Owls on the Estate and they are now a relatively common sight where they can be seen hunting over the fields at dusk. More information on Barn Owls can be found here https://www.rspb.org.uk/birds-and-wildlife/wildlife-guides/bird-a-z/barn-owl/
