Wildlife and woodland restoration programme update.
Redmond Group is celebrating a successful first two years of a five-year wildlife restoration programme across 11.5 acres of woodland.
The programme is being monitored in accordance with the United Nations Global Compact and the woodland is open to small groups of people on pre-organised visits. Animals in the Redmond Group community zoo are kept here.
Since Redmond Group initiated the restoration programme, new animals have been introduced and species have returned. The ground was prepared to save hedgehogs and their habitat and pheasants have become a permanent fixture, alongside many other native birds.
The rule of the restoration programme is that no animal can be killed and that all animals must be catered for through considered land management techniques. Woodpeckers, tawny owls, birds of prey, barn mice, muntjac deer, badgers, hedgehogs and rabbits and at least one cuckoo are all living in the woodland!
Redmond Group employees are regular volunteers on the land, carrying out initiatives to support the restoration programme.
