Today, after over 50 years of dedicated and loyal service, saw the retirement of Jim Mortlock as Head Forester on the Estate. During his retirement presentation, our Estates Director commented “Jim has clearly been an inspiration and role model to us all. Your achievements over the past 50 years will be enjoyed by everyone for a very long time. The many hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of trees planted under your watch will be your legacy. Your work with Lord Normanby in carrying on the great work of Humphrey Repton in designing the landscape around the Castle and maintaining Mulgrave Woods for public enjoyment are just two examples of the great contributions you have made to this Estate”. We would like to thank Jim for his 50 years of service and wish him a very long and happy retirement. Today we also welcome Tommy Milburn as our new Head Forester, who now has the keys to Mulgrave Woods and has some very big boots to fill.

Across the Mulgrave Estate we have been working with Natural England and the North York Moors National Park Authority to restore the ancient hedgerow network in specific targetted areas. One such area is in the Kettleness landscape out on the coast. A location with little tree or hedgerow cover, it has been a real challenge to restore the old network of field boundary hedges here. The majority of the old hedges date back to the 1850’s and have become weathered and stunted with only a few remnant stems visible in certain places.

Welcome to our first blog from our Wildlife Manager, Steve, who will be providing updates throughout the year on the wildlife, countryside and his role on the Estate.
“Birds are feeding heavily in preparation for the coming nesting season. The Estate has a number of wild bird crops dotted around the Estate which provide a valuable food source at this time of year with additional feeding of wheat and barley from our harvested crops.
Owl & Kestrel populations are thriving, naturally managing the mice and voles populations assisted by other resident birds of prey.” Photos used have all been taken on the Estate, courtesy of the Estate Wildlife Photographer.
