Introducing our new wildlife area…

Introducing our new wildlife area…

We have been busy over the winter setting up a new wildlife area on the site and thought we would give you an early view…   

We are sure that younger visitors to Southfork will love exploring the area and looking for creepy crawlies.    We have so far set up a bug hotel, Log piles, wildlife pond and bird feeders.  We will be adding a hedgehog house to the area soon as well as adding bird boxes in various places around the park.   We are also planning to clear the banks in between the two fields to plant wild flowers.

Southfork is one of 579 camping and caravanning parks in the UK to be awarded a David Bellamy Conservation Award.  Parks are assessed by the scheme’s team of local wildlife experts on the steps they are taking to:   

  • Manage their land as a haven for wildlife 
  • Reduce their use of energy, water and other resources 
  • Reduce, reuse and recycle the waste they produce 
  • Support their local communities   

 We have also taken the BBKA Bee Pledge.   This means that we are doing all we can to make sure our park is working to help Britain's honey bees and other pollinators by planting forage crops, providing places for bees to live and promoting bee conservation.   There are a number of British wildlife species which are officially under threat, including the much loved hedgehog, species of butterfly and many insects.  There are a number of reasons for this, including climate change, habitat loss and a reduction in biodiversity.   Our wildlife area will continue to develop over time – we hope it will become a favourite feature of our human and animal visitors alike!
