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/

You may have noticed that some of our fields are changing colour as we approach the summer. We’ve recently added just over 4ha of Bumblebird mix to the fields below Tom’s Yat beside the A174 coast road. This brings the total to just under 19ha of the mix across the Estate. Situated in favourable locations, the mix includes species such as Linseed, Fodder Radish, White Mustard, Kale and Quinoa. Not only does this turn to seed and feed the wild farmland birds in the winter, it also benefits insects such Bumble bees, solitary bees, butterflies and hoverflies during the summer months. Combined with another 27ha of Winter bird food mix this equates to a significant area of land devoted to crops to encourage biodiversity across the Estate. Keep a lookout for the fields of colour this summer, they’re bringing real benefits to the birds and the bees of Mulgrave Estate. More information on wild bird food can be found here https://www.rspb.org.uk/our-work/conservation/conservation-and-sustainability/farming/advice/managing-habitats/wild-bird-seed-mixture/
These fields are just two elements of our extensive wildlife offer through our Countryside Stewardship agreements with Natural England, where we have a significant number of environmental options from the scheme that are benefiting the environment and wildlife across the Estate.

Mulgrave Farmland Bird Count – the results are in !
It seems like a lifetime ago now but back in February, Mulgrave Estate joined in with the GWCT Big Farmland Bird Count. This national event encouraged all farmers and landowners to get involved and record our ‘feathered friends’ on the farms for half an hour between the dates of 7 – 16 February. A number of farm tenants across the Estate participated in the scheme and the results were really interesting. The Estate office co-ordinated the scheme locally and forwarded the results to the national database.
