The Birds and the Bees

A new home for our feathered friends!

Keeping on the theme of furry friends… We have some more news regarding Burrough Court critters.

Alongside our stunning meeting venue and well appointed serviced office space, we are also a 1200 acre arable farm and keen conservationists to boot. Our most recent initiative seems to have been a success – we have new residents for our Owl boxes and we’re hoping to welcome some new additions to their numbers soon.

 With both Barn owls and Short Eared Owls having been spotted recently, we’ve welcomed the RSPB to Burrough Court to carry out a bird audit across the farm. To date we are pleased to note that over 30 different species have been spotted!

Our next venture is to enter the world of beekeeping – we’ll keep you updated with our progress… Hopefully our new colony of bees will be producing Burrough Court honey very soon.

SUCCESS!

Having just the other day shared the news about our new feathered friends our hopes have been fulfilled! The owlet featured below was discovered in a hedgerow yesterday, initial concerns that he had been seperated from his parents were allayed by a quick call to our bird expert.

This little fledgling should be flying above Burrough Court in the near future!

Our four legged friends…

A recent BBC article presented some research about having access to or a home for our four legged friends at work, highlighting benefits such as reduced stress and increased co-worker cooperation.

Here at Burrough Court we have to whole heartedly agree, although we only have room for three or four pooches at a time – we see the benefits they bring first hand. Giving coworkers en excuse to get out of the office for a break in the fresh air!

Our four legged friends bring people together, reduce stress and foster an atmosphere of commmitment for all those who work here… We knew this before the BBC so kindly highlighted it for us. For all those who don’t take my word for it, here is a link to the article!… http://bbc.in/H39xQw
