Wild Life and Nature at Brow Farm, P. Caunce & Son , Lancs, England. Some of the wild life at Brow Farm(Roe Deer, Barn owl, Tawny owl, Little owl, Woodcock, Jay, Vole, Red fox, Gray partridge, Pheasant, Skylark, Crow, Mole, Stoat, Weasel, Brown hare, Hedgehog, Rabbit, Mallard, Moorhen, Frog) to name but a few. Three tawny owl chicks in nest box B. They are three different sizes because the eggs are incubated as soon as they are laid. The eggs are all laid on different days. So the chicks hatch on different days. It is said that they do this so that if food gets scarce the biggest chick will get all the food and when he is full the next chick will take him share. So the more food there is the more chicks will get fed. Which is better than all the chicks being the same size and all getting the same amount of food and all starving. We saw the first of the young mallard on 15 April. It's not very often that any of them serve at this time of the year with the wet and cold weather there is not many insects for them to feed on. So we have penned them up for a couple of weeks were we'll feed them on chick food. ( Mallard mother loose a lot of there young when they take them on long walks from one pond to another. ) We have a Large amount of wild life on the farm. From the smallest Vole to one of our largest the Roe Deer. There is a wood of 3.5 hectares. That is called Hunters plantation. It is on moss land which is very high pH. This makes it ideal for rhododendron bushes some of which are more than 5 meters tall and 10 meters across. The rhododendrons make good nesting cover for birds. They are also used for roosting by small birds in winter as they give good protection against the cold winter nights.
