Northern park crowned a holiday heaven for wildlife

A Northumberland holiday park is flying high after birds, bees and butterflies helped wing it to a top environmental accolade from David Bellamy.

Causey Hill Holiday Park in Hexham was presented with his prestigious Conservation Award at its top gold level.

The family-owned park, enjoying picturesque views over the historic market town, has created a wildlife haven for guests to enjoy, said the professor.

Covering just under 20 acres, Causey Hill has been owned for the past ten years by the Daly family. It offers luxury caravan holiday homes to own as well as touring pitches.

David Bellamy said that the park could congratulate itself on having created an environment which provided a VIP welcome for both wildlife and holiday guests.

He praised the park's planting of hundreds of native trees and shrubs which, along with its private woodland, provide habitats and food resources for many animal and bird species.

Red squirrels are often spotted by on nature trails laid out through the grounds, and the park's wildlife pond is also a magnet for water fowl.

In addition, the park has introduced many high nectar-bearing flowers which provide vital food resources for honey bees and a wide range of butterfly species.

Owl and bird nesting boxes have also been placed throughout the park to encourage resident and visiting feathered friends.
