The farm provides an ideal habitat for many wild animals and we are very keen to preserve this for generations to come.  Many types of wading birds and wildfowl visit the RSPB Pagham Harbour Nature Reserve and overwinter on our flood meadows.  Large flocks of Teal, Widgeon, Curlew, Lapwing and Golden Plover can be seen as well as Oyster Catchers, Snipe and Little Egrets.  Water Voles have become re-established along the many watercourses.

We leave wide and uncultivated field margins which are used as hunting corridors for Barn Owls, Buzzards and Sparrowhawks, and for nesting by Skylarkes, Yellowhammers and English Partridge.  Brown Hares can also be seen racing and boxing in the spring when they are known as “Mad March Hares”!
