Wildlife on the Felbrigg Estate
Felbrigg's diverse habitats have something to offer the animal lover at every time of day and season.
The early sunlight dances through the morning mist onto the lichen-encrusted boles and twisted shapes of ancient Sweet Chestnuts. Waved Silk-moss snakes down the banks of Lion’s Mouth and in the Autumn flocks of Bramblings enjoy the beech mast feast. Golden Plover rise from the parkland, their cries mingling with the haunting sounds of the swirling Lapwings. The hare runs silently up a glistening furrow, whist the stoat is alert to every tiny squeak, and the Weasel is sometimes seen casually pottering in the car park or ducking and diving in the walled garden.
