With visitors chasing patches of blue skies, looking out for frogs in our newly created Toad Hall, and even getting up close and personal with hedgehogs, February half term is officially in full swing!
Today we received a special visit from Peter the four year-old fox! Peter is fostered by Kent Wildlife Rescue Service, after he was rescued following a serious road accident when he was one. KWRS rescues, treats and rehabilitate all species of wildlife that are found injured, sick or orphaned and return them to the wild, wherever possible. They often work alongside Leeds Castle, as the estate is a safe place to return these animals to the wild.
From 12th to 20th February, gather the family to follow the exciting activity trail, where you’ll learn about the different wildlife that call Leeds Castle home.
Join the squirrels to find the hidden acorns, discover the colourful British butterflies, create a sustainable wild art masterpiece, and help us spot the magnificent birds, from the Swallow to Wood Warbler.
Kent Wildlife Rescue Service are giving daily ‘Meet the Animals’ talks, sharing tips on how to look after the wildlife in our own gardens and communities.
