Moth watch

A fine example of a Border Beauty moth

Our staff and volunteer, Steve Broyd, have been surveying moths on the Sissinghurst Castle estate over the past five years. Some species that are in decline nationally have a home and thrive here.

A haven for twitchers

Alan Pavey, our volunteer bird enthusiast, spotted 103 species of birds on the estate during 2013. A list of new sightings is displayed in the Elizabethan barn. Visit our bird hide and see how many you can spot.

Building bridges

Our volunteer TAG team building bridges on the estate

Peter Dear, our head ranger, is busy all year round mending bridges, coppicing, ditch clearing and hedge laying. To help him, Peter formed the Thursday Action Group. Made up of volunteers and two members of our staff, Paul Freshwater and Freya Prince.
