We thought you might enjoy these photos of a Chaffinch and a Great Tit that we have taken around Ransom Wood. You’ve probably noticed on your travels that we have lots of bird feeders in the trees and we regularly top these up with bird food some of which is kindly given to us by the RSPB.
We’ve now identified an amazing 75 different species of bird here on the park so we’ll try to take a few more pics whilst we’re out and about.
It is important to feed your garden birds responsibly and safely. By following a few simple guidelines, we can play a valuable role in helping your local birds overcome periods of natural food shortage, survive periods of severe winter weather and come into good breeding condition in the spring.
There are many different mixes for feeders and for birdtables and ground feeding. The better mixtures contain plenty of flaked maize, sunflower seeds, and peanut granules.
You may be surprised to know that meaty tinned dog and cat food are an acceptable substitute to earthworms during the warm, dry part of the summer when worms are beyond the birds’ reach. Blackbirds readily take dog food, and even feed it to their chicks.
However bread should always be avoided as it causes the disease Angel Wing. This causes birds wings to stick out at an odd angle and they are no longer able to fly. In young birds it can also cause poor development in their joints.
If you have any of your own photographs of birds or any other wildlife around the park it would be great to see them.

Love this place
We rent an office here and it’s just such a lovely place to drive into everyday
Still love to walk around. I used to live in the big house at the top of the drive, it was Oak House then and I nursed at Ransom Hospital , Byron Ward which was on the left side of Ransom Hall car park. Oak House used to be Sisters accommodation. I think the main chef lived upstairs when I lived there and just me downstairs mostly. I loved it but had to keep my kitchen door closed because of the squirrels. Loved looking down the drive out of my bedroom and lounge windows, beautiful in Autumn and when it snowed, I worked at Ransom Hospital until it closed in 1987. Wonder why Oak House was later named Ash House? Lovely dining at Forever Green in the grounds whilst I reminisce.
Absolutely spot on as regards setting up a virtual office. Really friendly and helpful reception staff, with onsite meeting rooms available if needed. Very pleased.
Great place for taking pets a walk, lovely cafe with meeting rooms.
A great place
Brilliant place, they have all sorts of businesses there. A cafe, hypnotherapy, hypnopuncture as well many others. Worth a drive up just to see what's there. Furthermore, it's in lovely surroundings.
Just go there and walk for miles! Beautiful views from strawberry hill too.
