WILDLIFE POND
Trerieve has a hilltop pond fed from underground water which feeds into a stream. Frogs spawn in the flowering rushes and Dragonfiles and Water Boatmen skim over the surface of the water, attracting Swallows in summer.

Willows have colonised the hedges and Ragged Robin flowers throughout the spring and summer.

You may spot a Vole, Newts, Frogs or visiting Water Fowl from the waterside vantage point.

Cattle or sheep are used to graze around the pond, in order to control the vegetation and create a diverse habitat.
