The Dulaig has a lovely new website!

Wildlife flocks to The Dulaig wildlife pond
Our new wildlife pond works for wildlife! In the few months since we built it the pond has already attracted a wide variety of birds including grey wagtails and a heron. The  pebble beach is a great spot for the baby newts which sun themselves in the shallow water, and blackbirds, doves and other birds love to bathe and drink there too. Red squirrels, pheasants and other birds including up to 17 wild mallard ducks visit the pond every day….. we can’t wait for ...
