Did you become a nature detective and discover Gressenhall’s wild side this Bank Holiday Monday? If not, you missed a great day!
There was an opportunity to meet local nature detective Stuart Burgess, and find out what likes to live in leaf litter and discover what the tadpoles, backswimmers and other pond life are up to this springtime.
In the Victorian chapel, inspired by the natural world, you could watch The Wacky Woodturner, Joshua Hubbard, at work on his lathe and discover how he turns timber into bowls, mushrooms and dibbers.
And nearby, you could see what’s growing – and living – in the Gressenhall gardens.
You could also meet the team from the Raptor Trust and discover how they treat sick and injured birds of prey and find out about how they help protect and conserve both the birds and the habitat in which they live.
The site was bursting with new life – but what did you discover?
Down on the farm the horses were in action - Gressenhall's Suffolk Punches and Shires from members of the Eastern Counties Heavy Horse Association, ECHHA.
