Habitat Management at the Grange

Habitat Management at the Grange

Active habitat management continues onsite at the Grange wind farm for local wildlife conservation. Suitably licensed ecologists carried out an inspection of the existing bird and bat boxes and installed additional boxes.

A specialist contractor installed barn owl boxes which the latest inspection shows to still be fully functional with two of the boxes showing signs of regular use by local barn owls. Other boxes were partially filled with sticks from Jackdaws which were removed as can discourage barn owls from breeding.

Further environmental consideration was taken by the site team when the onsite roads required repair, following Sugar Beet harvesting. The team engaged with a firm who recently invested in new and innovative machinery to repair the roads using reduced volumes of stone. Other ongoing environmental work at the Grange includes planting of native hedgerows to enhance wildlife corridors and planting new low shrubland areas to provide ecological habitats.
